PREFACE 

(Translated by Victor E. Marsden) 

The author of this translation of the famous Protocols was himself a victim of the 
Revolution. He had lived for many years in Russia and was married to a Russian lady. 
Among his other activities in Russia he had been for a number of years a Russian 
Correspondent of the MORNING POST, a position which he occupied when the 
Revolution broke out, and his vivid descriptions of events in Russia will still be in the 
recollection of many of the readers of that J ournal. Naturally he was singled out for the 
anger of the Soviet. 

On the day that Captain Cromie was murdered by Jews, Victor Marsden was 
arrested and thrown into the Peter-Paul Prison, expecting every day to have his name 
called out for execution. This, however, he escaped, and eventually he was allowed to 
return to England very much of a wreck in bodily health. However, he recovered under 
treatment and the devoted care of his wife and friends. One of the first things he 
undertook, as soon as he was able, was this translation of the Protocols. 

Mr. Marsden was eminently well qualified for the work. His intimate acquaintance 
with Russia, Russian life and the Russian language on the one hand, and his mastery 
of a terse literary English style on the other, placed him in a position of advantage 
which few others could claim. The consequence is that we have in his version an 
eminently readable work, and though the subject-matter is somewhat formless, Mr. 
Marsden's literary touch reveals the thread running through the twenty-four Protocols. 
It may be said with truth that this work was carried out at the cost of Mr. Marsden's 
own life's blood. 

He told the writer of this Preface that he could not stand more than an hour at a

time of his work on it in the British Museum, as the diabolical spirit of the matter 
which he was obliged to turn into English made him positively ill. 

Mr. Marsden's connection with the MORNING POST was not severed by his return to 
England, and he was well enough to accept the post of special correspondent of that 
journal in the suite of H.R.H., the Prince of Wales on his Empire tour. From this he 
returned with the Prince, apparently in much better health, but within a few days of 
his landing he was taken suddenly ill, and died after a very brief illness. 

May this work be his crowning monument! In it he has performed an immense 
service to the English-speaking world, and there can be little doubt that it will take its 
place in the first rank of the English versions of "THE PROTOCOLS of the Meetings of 
the LEARNED ELDERS OF ZION." 



INTRODUCTION 

Of the Protocols themselves little need be said in the way of introduction. The book 
in which they are embodied was published by Sergyei Nilus in Russia in 1905. A copy 
of this is in the British Museum bearing the date of its reception, August 10, 1906. All 
copies that were known to exist in Russia were destroyed in the Kerensky regime, and 
under his successors the possession of a copy by anyone in Soviet land was a crime 
sufficient to ensure the owner's of being shot on sight. The fact is in itself sufficient 
proof of the genuineness of the Protocols. The J ewish journals, of course, say that 
they are a forgery, leaving it to be understood that Professor Nilus, who embodied 
them in a work of his own, had concocted them for his own purposes. 

Mr. Henry Ford, in an interview published in the New York WORLD, February 17th, 
1921, put the case for Nilus tersely and convincingly thus: "The only statement I care 
to make about the PROTOCOLS is that they fit in with what is going on. They are 
sixteen years old, and they have fitted the world situation up to this time. THEY FIT IT 
NOW." Indeed they do! 

The word "Protocol" signifies a precis gummed on to the front of a document, a 
draft of a document, minutes of proceedings. In this instance, "Protocol" means 
minutes of the proceedings of the Meetings of the Learned Elders of Zion. These 
Protocols give the substance of addresses delivered to the innermost circle of the 
Rulers of Zion. They reveal the converted plan of action of the J ewish Nation 
developed through the ages and edited by the Elders themselves up to date. Parts and 
summaries of the plan have been published from time to time during the centuries as 
the secrets of the Elders have leaked out. 

The claim of the J ews that the Protocols are forgeries is in itself an admission of 
their genuineness, for they NEVER ATTEMPT TO ANSWER THE FACTS corresponding to 
the THREATS which the Protocols contain, and, indeed, the correspondence between 
prophecy and fulfillment is too glaring to be set aside or obscured. This the Jews well 
know and therefore evade. 

The presumption is strong that the Protocols were issued, or reissued, at the First 
Zionist Congress held at Basle in 1897 under the presidency of the Father of Modern 
Zionism, the late Theodore Herzl. There has been recently published a volume of

Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

Herzl's "Diaries," a translation of some passages which appeared in the J EWI SH 
CHRONICLE of July 14, 1922. 

Herzl gives an account of his first visit to England in 1895, and his conversation 
with Colonel Goldsmid, a Jew brought up as a Christian, an officer in the English Army, 
and at heart a J ew Nationalist all the time. Goldsmid suggested to Herzl that the best 
way of expropriating the English aristocracy, and so destroying their power to protect 
the people of England against J ew domination, was to put excessive taxes on the land. 
Herzl thought this an excellent idea, and it is now to be found definitely embodied in 
Protocol VI ! 

The above extract from Herzl's DIARY is an extremely significant bit of evidence 
bearing on the existence of the J ew World Plot and authenticity of the Protocols, but 
any reader of intelligence will be able from his own knowledge of recent history and 
from his own experience to confirm the genuineness of every line of them, and it is in 
the light of this LIVING comment that all readers are invited to study Mr. Marsden's 
translation of this terribly inhuman document. And here is another very significant 
circumstance. 

The present successor of Herzl, as leader of the Zionist movement, Dr. Weizmann, 
quoted one of these sayings at the send-off banquet given to Chief Rabbi Hertz on 
October 6, 1920. The Chief Rabbi was on the point of leaving for HIS Empire tour of 
H.R.H., the Prince of Wales. And this is the "saying" of the Sages which Dr. Weizmann 
quoted: "A beneficent protection which God has instituted in the life of the Jew is that 
He has dispersed him all over the world." (JEWISH GUARDIAN, Oct. 8, 1920.) Now 
compare this with the last clause of but one of Protocol XI. "God has granted to us, His 
Chosen People, the gift of dispersion, and from this, which appears to all eyes to be 
our weakness, has come forth all our strength, which has now brought us to the 
threshold of sovereignty over all the world." 

The remarkable correspondence between these passages proves several things. It 
proves that the Learned Elders exist. It proves that Dr. Weizmann knows all about 
them. It proves that the desire for a "National Home" in Palestine is only camouflage 
and an infinitesimal part of the J ew's real object. It proves that the J ews of the world 
have no intention of settling in Palestine or any separate country, and that their 
annual prayer that they may all meet "Next Year in Jerusalem" is merely a piece of 
their characteristic make-believe. It also demonstrates that the Jews are now a world 
menace, and that the Aryan races will have to domicile them permanently out of 
Europe.. 



WHO ARE THE ELDERS? 

This is a secret which has not been revealed. They are the Hidden hand. They are 
not the "Board of Deputies" (the J ewish Parliament in England) or the "Universal 
Israelite Alliance" which sits in Paris. But the late Walter Rathenau of the Allgemeiner 
Electricitaets Gesellschaft has thrown a little light on the subject and doubtless he was 
in possession of their names, being, in all likelihood, one of the chief leaders himself. 
Writing in the WIENER FREIE PRESSE, December 24, 1912, he said: "Three hundred 
men, each of whom knows all the others, govern the fate of the European continent, 
and they elect their successors from their entourage."

I n the year 1844, on the eve of the J ewish Revolution of 1848, Benjamin Disraeli, 
whose real name was Israel, and who was a "damped," or baptized Jew, published his 
novel, CONINGSBY, in which occurs this ominous passage: "The world is governed by 
very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the 
scenes." And he went on to show that these personages were all J ews. 

Now that Providence has brought to the light of day these secret Protocols all men 
may clearly see the hidden personages specified by Disraeli at work "behind the 
scenes" of all the Governments. This revelation entails on all white peoples the grave 
responsibility of examining and revising AU FOND their attitude towards the Race and 
Nation which boasts of its survival over all Empires. 

Notes I. - "Agentur" and "The Political." There are two words in this translation 
which are unusual, the word "AGENTUR" and "political" used as a substantive, 
AGENTUR appears to be a word adopted from the original and it means the whole 
body of agents and agencies made use of by the Elders, whether members of the tribe 
or their Gentile tools. By "the Political" Mr. Marsden means, not exactly the "body 
politic" but the entire machinery of politics. 

Notes 1 1 - The Symbolic Snake of J udaism. Protocol 1 1 1 opens with a reference to 
the Symbolic Snake of J udaism. I n his Epilogue to the 1905 Edition of the Protocols, 
Nilus gives the following interesting account of this symbol: "According to the records 
of secret J ewish Zionism, Solomon and other J ewish learned men already, in 929 B.C., 
thought out a scheme in theory for a peaceful conquest of the whole universe by Zion. 

As history developed, this scheme was worked out in detail and completed by men 
who were subsequently initiated in this question. These learned men decided by 
peaceful means to conquer the world for Zion with the slyness of the Symbolic Snake, 
whose head was to represent those who have been initiated into the plans of the 
J ewish administration, and the body of the Snake to represent the J ewish people - the 
administration was always kept secret, EVEN FROM THE JEWISH NATION ITSELF. As 
this Snake penetrated into the hearts of the nations which it encountered it 
undermined and devoured all the non-Jewish power of these States. 

It is foretold that the Snake has still to finish its work, strictly adhering to the 
designed plan, until the course which it has to run is closed by the return of its head to 
Zion and until, by this means, the Snake has completed its round of Europe and has 
encircled it - and until, by dint of enchaining Europe, it has encompassed the whole 
world. This it is to accomplish by using every endeavor to subdue the other countries 
by an ECONOMICAL CONQUEST. 

The return of the head of the Snake to Zion can only be accomplished after the 
power of all the Sovereign of Europe has been laid low, that is to say, when by means 
of economic crises and wholesale destruction effected everywhere, there shall have 
been brought about a spiritual demoralization and a moral corruption, chiefly with the 
assistance of Jewish women masquerading as French, Italians, etc.. These are the 
surest spreaders of licentiousness into the lives of the leading men at the heads of 
nations. 

A map of the course of the Symbolic Snake is shown as follows: - Its first stage in 
Europe was in 429 B.C. in Greece, where, about the time of Pericles, the Snake first 
started eating into the power of that country. The second stage was in Rome in the 
time of Augustus, about 69 B.C.. The third in Madrid in the time of Charles V, in A.D.

1552. The fourth in Paris about 1790, in the time of Louis XVI. The fifth in London 
from 1814 onwards (after the downfall of Napoleon). The sixth in Berlin in 1871 after 
the Franco-Prussian war. The seventh in St. Petersburg, over which is drawn the head 
of the Snake under the date of 1881. [This "Snake" is now being drawn through the 
Americas and in the United States of America, it is been partially identified as the 
"Counsel on Foreign Relations" (C.F.R.) and the "Tri-Lateral Commission"]. 

All these States which the Snake traversed have had the foundations of their 
constitutions shaken, Germany, with its apparent power, forming no exception to the 
rule. In economic conditions, England and Germany are spared, but only till the 
conquest of Russia is accomplished by the Snake, on which at present [i.e., 1905] all 
its efforts are concentrated. The further course of the Snake is not shown on this map, 
but arrows indicate its next movement towards Moscow, Kieft and Odessa. It is now 
well known to us to what extent the latter cities form the centuries of the militant 
J ewish race. Constantinople is shown as the last stage of the Snake's course before it 
reaches J erusalem. (This map was drawn years before the occurrence of the "Young 
Turk" - i.e., J ewish - Revolution in Turkey), den. 

Notes III. - The term "Goyim," meaning Gentile or non-J ews, is used throughout 
the Protocols and is retained by Mr. Mars.

PROTOCOLS OF THE MEETINGS OF THE LEARNED 

ELDERS OF ZION 

PROTOCOL No. 1 

1 Putting aside fine phrases we shall speak of the significance of each thought: 

by comparisons and deductions we shall throw light upon surrounding facts. 

2. What I am about to set forth, then, is our system from the two points of view, 
that of ourselves and that of the GOYI M [i.e., non- J ews]. 

3. It must be noted that men with bad instincts are more in number than the good, 
and therefore the best results in governing them are attained by violence and 
terrorisation, and not by academic discussions. Every man aims at power, everyone 
would like to become a dictator if only he could, and rare indeed are the men who 
would not be willing to sacrifice the welfare of all for the sake of securing their own 
welfare. 

4. What has restrained the beasts of prey who are called men? What has served for 
their guidance hitherto? 

5. In the beginnings of the structure of society, they were subjected to brutal and 
blind force; after words - to Law, which is the same force, only disguised. I draw the 
conclusion that by the law of nature right lies in force.

6. Political freedom is an idea but not a fact. This idea one must know how to apply 
whenever it appears necessary with this bait of an idea to attract the masses of the 
people to one's party for the purpose of crushing another who is in authority. This task 
is rendered easier of the opponent has himself been infected with the idea of freedom, 
SO-CALLED LI BERALISM, and, for the sake of an idea, is willing to yield some of his 
power. It is precisely here that the triumph of our theory appears; the slackened reins 
of government are immediately, by the law of life, caught up and gathered together by 
a new hand, because the blind might of the nation cannot for one single day exist 
without guidance, and the new authority merely fits into the place of the old already 
weakened by liberalism. 

GOLD 

7. In our day the power which has replaced that of the rulers who were liberal is the 
power of Gold. Time was when Faith ruled. The idea of freedom is impossible of 
realization because no one knows how to use it with moderation. It is enough to hand 
over a people to self-government for a certain length of time for that people to be 
turned into a disorganized mob. From that moment on we get internecine strife which 
soon develops into battles between classes, in the midst of which States burn down 
and their importance is reduced to that of a heap of ashes. 

8. Whether a State exhausts itself in its own convulsions, whether its internal 
discord brings it under the power of external foes - in any case it can be accounted 
irretrievable lost: IT IS IN OUR POWER. The despotism of Capital, which is entirely in 
our hands, reaches out to it a straw that the State, willy-nilly, must take hold of: if not 
- it goes to the bottom. 

9. Should anyone of a liberal mind say that such reflections as the above are 
immoral, I would put the following questions: If every State has two foes and if in 
regard to the external foe it is allowed and not considered immoral to use every 
manner and art of conflict, as for example to keep the enemy in ignorance of plans of 
attack and defense, to attack him by night or in superior numbers, then in what way 
can the same means in regard to a worse foe, the destroyer of the structure of society 
and the commonweal, be called immoral and not permissible? 

10. Is it possible for any sound logical mind to hope with any success to guide 
crowds by the aid of reasonable counsels and arguments, when any objection or 
contradiction, senseless though it may be, can be made and when such objection may 
find more favor with the people, whose powers of reasoning are superficial? Men in 
masses and the men of the masses, being guided solely by petty passions, paltry 
beliefs, traditions and sentimental theorems, fall a prey to party dissension, which 
hinders any kind of agreement even on the basis of a perfectly reasonable argument. 
Every resolution of a crowd depends upon a chance or packed majority, which, in its 
ignorance of political secrets, puts forth some ridiculous resolution that lays in the 
administration a seed of anarchy. 

11. The political has nothing in common with the moral. The ruler who is governed 
by the moral is not a skilled politician, and is therefore unstable on his throne. He who 
wishes to rule must have recourse both to cunning and to make-believe. Great 
national qualities, like frankness and honesty, are vices in politics, for they bring down 
rulers from their thrones more effectively and more certainly than the most powerful 
enemy. Such qualities must be the attributes of the kingdoms of the GOYIM, but we 
must in no wise be guided by them.

MIGHT IS RIGHT 

12. Our right lies in force. The word "right" is an abstract thought and proved by 
nothing. The word means no more than: Give me what I want in order that thereby I 
may have a proof that I am stronger than you. 

13. Where does right begin? Where does it end? 

14. In any State in which there is a bad organization of authority, an impersonality 
of laws and of the rulers who have lost their personality amid the flood of rights ever 
multiplying out of liberalism, I find a new right - to attack by the right of the strong, 
and to scatter to the winds all existing forces of order and regulation, to reconstruct all 
institutions and to become the sovereign lord of those who have left to us the rights of 
their power by laying them down voluntarily in their liberalism. 

15. Our power in the present tottering condition of all forms of power will be more 
invincible than any other, because it will remain invisible until the moment when it has 
gained such strength that no cunning can any longer undermine it. 

16. Out of the temporary evil we are now compelled to commit will emerge the 
good of an unshakable rule, which will restore the regular course of the machinery of 
the national life, brought to naught by liberalism. The result justifies the means. Let 
us, however, in our plans, direct our attention not so much to what is good and moral 
as to what is necessary and useful. 

17. Before us is a plan in which is laid down strategically the line from which we 
cannot deviate without running the risk of seeing the labor of many centuries brought 
to naught. 

18. In order to elaborate satisfactory forms of action it is necessary to have regard 
to the rascality, the slackness, the instability of the mob, its lack of capacity to 
understand and respect the conditions of its own life, or its own welfare. It must be 
understood that the might of a mob is blind, senseless and unreasoning force ever at 
the mercy of a suggestion from any side. The blind cannot lead the blind without 
bringing them into the abyss; consequently, members of the mob, upstarts from the 
people even though they should be as a genius for wisdom, yet having no 
understanding of the political, cannot come forward as leaders of the mob without 
bringing the whole nation to ruin. 

19. Only one trained from childhood for independent rule can have understanding of 
the words that can be made up of the political alphabet. 

20. A people left to itself, i.e., to upstarts from its midst, brings itself to ruin by 
party dissensions excited by the pursuit of power and honors and the disorders arising 
therefrom. Is it possible for the masses of the people calmly and without petty 
jealousies to form judgment, to deal with the affairs of the country, which cannot be 
mixed up with personal interest? Can they defend themselves from an external foe? It 
is unthinkable; for a plan broken up into as many parts as there are heads in the mob, 
loses all homogeneity, and thereby becomes unintelligible and impossible of execution. 

WE ARE DESPOTS 



http://quotes.strongcity.com/protocols_of_zion.html 



3/31/01 



Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion 



Page 9 of 54 



21. It is only with a despotic ruler that plans can be elaborated extensively and 
clearly in such a way as to distribute the whole properly among the several parts of 
the machinery of the State: from this the conclusion is inevitable that a satisfactory 
form of government for any country is one that concentrates in the hands of one 
responsible person. Without an absolute despotism there can be no existence for 
civilization which is carried on not by the masses but by their guide, whosoever that 
person may be. The mob is savage, and displays its savagery at every opportunity. 
The moment the mob seizes freedom in its hands it quickly turns to anarchy, which in 
itself is the highest degree of savagery. 

22. Behold the alcoholic animals, bemused with drink, the right to an immoderate 
use of which comes along with freedom. It is not for us and ours to walk that road. 
The peoples of the GOYI M are bemused with alcoholic liquors; their youth has grown 
stupid on classicism and from early immorality, into which it has been inducted by our 
special agents - by tutors, lackeys, governesses in the houses of the wealthy, by 
clerks and others, by our women in the places of dissipation frequented by the GOYI M. 
I n the number of these last I count also the so-called "society ladies," voluntary 
followers of the others in corruption and luxury. 

23. Our countersign is - Force and Make-believe. Only force conquers in political 
affairs, especially if it be concealed in the talents essential to statesmen. Violence 
must be the principle, and cunning and make-believe the rule for governments which 
do not want to lay down their crowns at the feet of agents of some new power. This 
evil is the one and only means to attain the end, the good. Therefore we must not stop 
at bribery, deceit and treachery when they should serve towards the attainment of our 
end. In politics one must know how to seize the property of others without hesitation if 
by it we secure submission and sovereignty. 

24. Our State, marching along the path of peaceful conquest, has the right to 
replace the horrors of war by less noticeable and more satisfactory sentences of death, 
necessary to maintain the terror which tends to produce blind submission. J ust but 
merciless severity is the greatest factor of strength in the State: not only for the sake 
of gain but also in the name of duty, for the sake of victory, we must keep to the 
programme of violence and make-believe. The doctrine of squaring accounts is 
precisely as strong as the means of which it makes use. Therefore it is not so much by 
the means themselves as by the doctrine of severity that we shall triumph and bring 
all governments into subjection to our super-government. It is enough for them to 
know that we are too merciless for all disobedience to cease. 

WE SHALL END LIBERTY 

25. Far back in ancient times we were the first to cry among the masses of the 
people the words "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity," words many times repeated since 
these days by stupid poll- parrots who, from all sides around, flew down upon these 
baits and with them carried away the well-being of the world, true freedom of the 
individual, formerly so well guarded against the pressure of the mob. The would-be 
wise men of the GOYIM, the intellectuals, could not make anything out of the uttered 
words in their abstractedness; did not see that in nature there is no equality, cannot 
be freedom: that Nature herself has established inequality of minds, of characters, and 
capacities, just as immutably as she has established subordination to her laws: never 
stopped to think that the mob is a blind thing, that upstarts elected from among it to 
bear rule are, in regard to the political, the same blind men as the mob itself, that the 
adept, though he be a fool, can yet rule, whereas the non-adept, even if he were a 
genius, understands nothing in the political - to all those things the GOYIM paid no

Page 10 of 54 



regard; yet all the time it was based upon these things that dynastic rule rested: the 
father passed on to the son a knowledge of the course of political affairs in such wise 
that none should know it but members of the dynasty and none could betray it to the 
governed. As time went on, the meaning of the dynastic transference of the true 
position of affairs in the political was lost, and this aided the success of our cause. 

26. In all corners of the earth the words "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity," brought to 
our ranks, thanks to our blind agents, whole legions who bore our banners with 
enthusiasm. And all the time these words were canker-worms at work boring into the 
well-being of the GOYIM, putting an end everywhere to peace, quiet, solidarity and 
destroying all the foundations of the GOYA States. As you will see later, this helped us 
to our triumph: it gave us the possibility, among other things, of getting into our 
hands the master card - the destruction of the privileges, or in other words of the very 
existence of the aristocracy of the GOYI M, that class which was the only defense 
peoples and countries had against us. On the ruins of the eternal and genealogical 
aristocracy of the GOYI M we have set up the aristocracy of our educated class headed 
by the aristocracy of money. The qualifications for this aristocracy we have established 
in wealth, which is dependent upon us, and in knowledge, for which our learned elders 
provide the motive force. 

27. Our triumph has been rendered easier by the fact that in our relations with the 
men, whom we wanted, we have always worked upon the most sensitive chords of the 
human mind, upon the cash account, upon the cupidity, upon the insatiability for 
material needs of man; and each one of these human weaknesses, taken alone, is 
sufficient to paralyze initiative, for it hands over the will of men to the disposition of 
him who has bought their activities. 

28. The abstraction of freedom has enabled us to persuade the mob in all countries 
that their government is nothing but the steward of the people who are the owners of 
the country, and that the steward may be replaced like a worn-out glove. 

29. It is this possibility of replacing the representatives of the people which has 
placed at our disposal, and, as it were, given us the power of appointment.

Protocol No. 2 

1. It is indispensable for our purpose that wars, so far as possible, should not result 
in territorial gains: war will thus be brought on to the economic ground, where the 
nations will not fail to perceive in the assistance we give the strength of our 
predominance, and this state of things will put both sides at the mercy of our 
international AGENTUR; which possesses millions of eyes ever on the watch and 
unhampered by any limitations whatsoever. Our international rights will then wipe out 
national rights, in the proper sense of right, and will rule the nations precisely as the 
civil law of States rules the relations of their subjects among themselves. 

2. The administrators, whom we shall choose from among the public, with strict 
regard to their capacities for servile obedience, will not be persons trained in the arts 
of government, and will therefore easily become pawns in our game in the hands of

men of learning and genius who will be their advisers, specialists bred and reared from 
early childhood to rule the affairs of the whole world. As is well known to you, these 
specialists of ours have been drawing to fit them for rule the information they need 
from our political plans from the lessons of history, from observations made of the 
events of every moment as it passes. The GOYIM are not guided by practical use of 
unprejudiced historical observation, but by theoretical routine without any critical 
regard for consequent results. We need not, therefore, take any account of them - let 
them amuse themselves until the hour strikes, or live on hopes of new forms of 
enterprising pastime, or on the memories of all they have enjoyed. For them let that 
play the principal part which we have persuaded them to accept as the dictates of 
science (theory). It is with this object in view that we are constantly, by means of our 
press, arousing a blind confidence in these theories. The intellectuals of the GOYIM will 
puff themselves up with their knowledge and without any logical verification of them 
will put into effect all the information available from science, which our AGENTUR 
specialists have cunningly pieced together for the purpose of educating their minds in 
the direction we want. 

DESTRUCTIVE EDUCATION 

3. Do not suppose for a moment that these statements are empty words: think 
carefully of the successes we arranged for Darwinism, Marxism, Nietzsche-ism. To us 
Jews, at any rate, it should be plain to see what a disintegrating importance these 
directives have had upon the minds of the GOYIM. 

4. It is indispensable for us to take account of the thoughts, characters, tendencies 
of the nations in order to avoid making slips in the political and in the direction of 
administrative affairs. The triumph of our system of which the component parts of the 
machinery may be variously disposed according to the temperament of the peoples 
met on our way, will fail of success if the practical application of it be not based upon a 
summing up of the lessons of the past in the light of the present. 

5. In the hands of the States of to-day there is a great force that creates the 
movement of thought in the people, and that is the Press. The part played by the 
Press is to keep pointing our requirements supposed to be indispensable, to give voice 
to the complaints of the people, to express and to create discontent. It is in the Press 
that the triumph of freedom of speech finds its incarnation. But the GOYI M States 
have not known how to make use of this force; and it has fallen into our hands. 
Through the Press we have gained the power to influence while remaining ourselves in 
the shade; thanks to the Press we have got the GOLD in our hands, notwithstanding 
that we have had to gather it out of the oceans of blood and tears. But it has paid us, 
though we have sacrificed many of our people. Each victim on our side is worth in the 
sight of God a thousand GOYIM.

PROTOCOL No. 3 

1. To-day I may tell you that our goal is now only a few steps off. There remains a 
small space to cross and the whole long path we have trodden is ready now to close 
its cycle of the Symbolic Snake, by which we symbolize our people. When this ring

closes, all the States of Europe will be locked in its coil as in a powerful vice. 

2. The constitution scales of these days will shortly break down, for we have 
established them with a certain lack of accurate balance in order that they may 
oscillate incessantly until they wear through the pivot on which they turn. The GOYI M 
are under the impression that they have welded them sufficiently strong and they 
have all along kept on expecting that the scales would come into equilibrium. But the 
pivots - the kings on their thrones - are hemmed in by their representatives, who play 
the fool, distraught with their own uncontrolled and irresponsible power. This power 
they owe to the terror which has been breathed into the palaces. As they have no 
means of getting at their people, into their very midst, the kings on their thrones are 
no longer able to come to terms with them and so strengthen themselves against 
seekers after power. We have made a gulf between the far-seeing Sovereign Power 
and the blind force of the people so that both have lost all meaning, for like the blind 
man and his stick, both are powerless apart. 

3. In order to incite seekers after power to a misuse of power we have set all forces 
in opposition one to another, breaking up their liberal tendencies towards 
independence. To this end we have stirred up every form of enterprise, we have 
armed all parties, we have set up authority as a target for every ambition. Of States 
we have made gladiatorial arenas where a lot of confused issues contend .... A little 
more, and disorders and bankruptcy will be universal .... 

4. Babblers, inexhaustible, have turned into oratorical contests the sittings of 
Parliament and Administrative Boards. Bold journalists and unscrupulous pamphleteers 
daily fall upon executive officials. Abuses of power will put the final touch in preparing 
all institutions for their overthrow and everything will fly skyward under the blows of 
the maddened mob. 

POVERTY OUR WEAPON 

5. All people are chained down to heavy toil by poverty more firmly than ever. They 
were chained by slavery and serfdom; from these, one way and another, they might 
free themselves. These could be settled with, but from want they will never get away. 
We have included in the constitution such rights as to the masses appear fictitious and 
not actual rights. All these so-called "Peoples Rights" can exist only in idea, an idea 
which can never be realized in practical life. What is it to the proletariat laborer, bowed 
double over his heavy toil, crushed by his lot in life, if talkers get the right to babble, if 
journalists get the right to scribble any nonsense side by side with good stuff, once the 
proletariat has no other profit out of the constitution save only those pitiful crumbs 
which we fling them from our table in return for their voting in favor of what we 
dictate, in favor of the men we place in power, the servants of our AGENTUR ... 
Republican rights for a poor man are no more than a bitter piece of irony, for the 
necessity he is under of toiling almost all day gives him no present use of them, but 
the other hand robs him of all guarantee of regular and certain earnings by making 
him dependent on strikes by his comrades or lockouts by his masters. 

WE SUPPORT COMMUNISM 

6. The people, under our guidance, have annihilated the aristocracy, who were their 
one and only defense and foster- mother for the sake of their own advantage which is 
inseparably bound up with the well-being of the people. Nowadays, with the 
destruction of the aristocracy, the people have fallen into the grips of merciless 



http://quotes.strongcity.com/protocols_of_zion.html 



3/31/01 



Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion 



Page 13 of 54 



money-grinding scoundrels who have laid a pitiless and cruel yoke upon the necks of 
the workers. 

7. We appear on the scene as alleged saviours of the worker from this oppression 
when we propose to him to enter the ranks of our fighting forces - Socialists, 
Anarchists, Communists - to whom we always give support in accordance with an 
alleged brotherly rule (of the solidarity of all humanity) of our SOCIAL MASONRY. The 
aristocracy, which enjoyed by law the labor of the workers, was interested in seeing 
that the workers were well fed, healthy, and strong. We are interested in just the 
opposite - in the diminution, the KILLING OUT OF THE GOYIM. Our power is in the 
chronic shortness of food and physical weakness of the worker because by all that this 
implies he is made the slave of our will, and he will not find in his own authorities 
either strength or energy to set against our will. Hunger creates the right of capital to 
rule the worker more surely than it was given to the aristocracy by the legal authority 
of kings. 

8. By want and the envy and hatred which it engenders we shall move the mobs 
and with their hands we shall wipe out all those who hinder us on our way. 

9. WHEN THE HOUR STRIKES FOR OUR SOVEREIGN LORD OF ALL THE WORLD TO 
BE CROWNED IT IS THESE SAME HANDS WHICH WILL SWEEP AWAY EVERYTHING 
THAT MIGHT BE A HINDRANCE THERETO. 

10. The GOYI M have lost the habit of thinking unless prompted by the suggestions 
of our specialists. Therefore they do not see the urgent necessity of what we, when 
our kingdom comes, shall adopt at once, namely this, that IT IS ESSENTIAL TO TEACH 
IN NATIONAL SCHOOLS ONE SIMPLE, TRUE PIECE OF KNOWLEDGE, THE BASIS OF 
ALL KNOWLEDGE - THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE STRUCTURE OF HUMAN LI FE, OF SOCIAL 
EXISTENCE, WHICH REQUIRES DIVISION OF LABOR, AND, CONSEQUENTLY, THE 
DIVISION OF MEN INTO CLASSES AND CONDITIONS. It is essential for all to know 
that OWI NG TO Dl FFERENCE I N THE OBJ ECTS OF HUMAN ACTIVITY THERE CANNOT 
BE ANY EQUALITY, that he, who by any act of his compromises a whole class, cannot 
be equally responsible before the law with him who affects no one but only his own 
honor. The true knowledge of the structure of society, into the secrets of which we do 
not admit the GOYIM, would demonstrate to all men that the positions and work must 
be kept within a certain circle, that they may not become a source of human suffering, 
arising from an education which does not correspond with the work which individuals 
are called upon to do. After a thorough study of this knowledge, the peoples will 
voluntarily submit to authority and accept such position as is appointed them in the 
State. In the present state of knowledge and the direction we have given to its 
development of the people, blindly believing things in print - cherishes - thanks to 
promptings intended to mislead and to its own ignorance - a blind hatred towards all 
conditions which it considers above itself, for it has no understanding of the meaning 
of class and condition. 

JEWS WILL BE SAFE 

11. THI S HATRED Wl LL BE STI LL FURTHER MAGNI Fl ED BY THE EFFECTS of an 
ECONOMIC CRISES, which will stop dealing on the exchanges and bring industry to a 
standstill. We shall create by all the secret subterranean methods open to us and with 
the aid of gold, which is all in our hands, A UNIVERSAL ECONOMIC CRISES WHEREBY 
WE SHALL THROW UPON THE STREETS WHOLE MOBS OF WORKERS 

SI MULTANEOUSLY I N ALL THE COUNTRI ES OF EUROPE. These mobs will rush 
delightedly to shed the blood of those whom, in the simplicity of their ignorance, they 



http://quotes.strongcity.com/protocols_of_zion.html

Page 14 of 54 



have envied from their cradles, and whose property they will then be able to loot. 

12. "OURS" THEY Wl LL NOT TOUCH, BECAUSE THE MOMENT OF ATTACK Wl LL BE 
KNOWN TO US AND WE SHALL TAKE MEASURES TO PROTECT OUR OWN. 

13. We have demonstrated that progress will bring all the GOYIM to the sovereignty 
of reason. Our despotism will be precisely that; for it will know how, by wise 
severities, to pacificate all unrest, to cauterize liberalism out of all institutions. 

14. When the populace has seen that all sorts of concessions and indulgences are 
yielded it, in the same name of freedom it has imagined itself to be sovereign lord and 
has stormed its way to power, but, naturally like every other blind man, it has come 
upon a host of stumbling blocks. IT HAS RUSHED TO Fl ND A GUI DE, IT HAS NEVER 
HAD THE SENSE TO RETURN TO THE FORMER STATE and it has laid down its 
plenipotentiary powers at OUR feet. Remember the French Revolution, to which it was 
we who gave the name of "Great": the secrets of its preparations are well known to us 
for it was wholly the work of our hands. 

15 Ever since that time we have been leading the peoples from one disenchantment 
to another, so that in the end they should turn also from us in favor of that Kl NG- 
DESPOT OF THE BLOOD OF ZION, WHOM WE ARE PREPARING FOR THE WORLD. 

16. At the present day we are, as an international force, invincible, because if 
attacked by some we are supported by other States. It is the bottomless rascality of 
the GOYIM peoples, who crawl on their bellies to force, but are merciless towards 
weakness, unsparing to faults and indulgent to crimes, unwilling to bear the 
contradictions of a free social system but patient unto martyrdom under the violence 
of a bold despotism - it is those qualities which are aiding us to independence. From 
the premier- dictators of the present day, the GOYIM peoples suffer patiently and bear 
such abuses as for the least of them they would have beheaded twenty kings. 

17. What is the explanation of this phenomenon, this curious inconsequence of the 
masses of the peoples in their attitude towards what would appear to be events of the 
same order? 

18. It is explained by the fact that these dictators whisper to the peoples through 
their agents that through these abuses they are inflicting injury on the States with the 
highest purpose - to secure the welfare of the peoples, the international brotherhood 
of them all, their solidarity and equality of rights. Naturally they do not tell the peoples 
that this unification must be accomplished only under our sovereign rule. 

19. And thus the people condemn the upright and acquit the guilty, persuaded ever 
more and more that it can do whatsoever it wishes. Thanks to this state of things, the 
people are destroying every kind of stability and creating disorders at every step. 

20. The word "freedom" brings out the communities of men to fight against every 
kind of force, against every kind of authority even against God and the laws of nature. 
For this reason we, when we come into our kingdom, shall have to erase this word 
from the lexicon of life as implying a principle of brute force which turns mobs into 
bloodthirsty beasts. 

21. These beasts, it is true, fall asleep again every time when they have drunk their

fill of blood, and at such time can easily be riveted into their chains. But if they be not 
given blood they will not sleep and continue to struggle 

Top of Protocols 



PROTOCOL No. 4 

1. Every republic passes through several stages. The first of these is comprised in 
the early days of mad raging by the blind mob, tossed hither and thither, right and 
left: the second is demagogy from which is born anarchy, and that leads inevitably to 
despotism - not any longer legal and overt, and therefore responsible despotism, but 
to unseen and secretly hidden, yet nevertheless sensibly felt despotism in the hands of 
some secret organization or other, whose acts are the more unscrupulous inasmuch as 
it works behind a screen, behind the backs of all sorts of agents, the changing of 
whom not only does not injuriously affect but actually aids the secret force by saving 
it, thanks to continual changes, from the necessity of expanding its resources on the 
rewarding of long services. 

2. Who and what is in a position to overthrow an invisible force? And this is 
precisely what our force is. GENTILE masonry blindly serves as a screen for us and our 
objects, but the plan of action of our force, even its very abiding-place, remains for 
the whole people an unknown mystery. 

WE SHALL DESTROY GOD 

3. But even freedom might be harmless and have its place in the State economy 
without injury to the well-being of the peoples if it rested upon the foundation of faith 
in God, upon the brotherhood of humanity, unconnected with the conception of 
equality, which is negatived by the very laws of creation, for they have established 
subordination. With such a faith as this a people might be governed by a wardship of 
parishes, and would walk contentedly and humbly under the guiding hand of its 
spiritual pastor submitting to the dispositions of God upon earth. This is the reason 
why IT IS INDISPENSABLE FOR US TO UNDERMINE ALL FAITH, TO TEAR OUT OF THE 
MIND OF THE "GOYI M" THE VERY PRINCIPLE OF GOD-HEAD AND THE SPIRIT, AND TO 
PUT IN ITS PLACE ARITHMETICAL CALCULATIONS AND MATERIAL NEEDS. 

4. In order to give the GOYIM no time to think and take note, their minds must be 
diverted towards industry and trade. Thus, all the nations will be swallowed up in the 
pursuit of gain and in the race for it will not take note of their common foe. But again, 
in order that freedom may once for all disintegrate and ruin the communities of the 
GOYIM, we must put industry on a speculative basis: the result of this will be that 
what is withdrawn from the land by industry will slip through the hands and pass into 
speculation, that is, to our classes. 

5. The intensified struggle for superiority and shocks delivered to economic life will 
create, nay, have already created, disenchanted, cold and heartless communities. 
Such communities will foster a strong aversion towards the higher political and 
towards religion. Their only guide is gain, that is Gold, which they will erect into a 
veritable cult, for the sake of those material delights which it can give. Then will the 
hour strike when, not for the sake of attaining the good, not even to win wealth, but 



http://quotes.strongcity.com/protocols_of_zion.html

Page 16 of 54 



solely out of hatred towards the privileged, the lower classes of the GOYIM will follow 
our lead against our rivals for power, the intellectuals of the GOYIM. 

Top of Protocols 



PROTOCOL No. 5 

1. What form of administrative rule can be given to communities in which 
corruption has penetrated everywhere, communities where riches are attained only by 
the clever surprise tactics of semi-swindling tricks; where looseness reigns: where 
morality is maintained by penal measures and harsh laws but not by voluntarily 
accepted principles: where the feelings towards faith and country are obligated by 
cosmopolitan convictions? What form of rule is to be given to these communities if not 
that despotism which I shall describe to you later? We shall create an intensified 
centralization of government in order to grip in our hands all the forces of the 
community. We shall regulate mechanically all the actions of the political life of our 
subjects by new laws. These laws will withdraw one by one all the indulgences and 
liberties which have been permitted by the GOYIM, and our kingdom will be 
distinguished by a despotism of such magnificent proportions as to be at any moment 
and in every place in a position to wipe out any GOYIM who oppose us by deed or 
word. 

2. We shall be told that such a despotism as I speak of is not consistent with the 
progress of these days, but I will prove to you that is is. 

3. In the times when the peoples looked upon kings on their thrones as on a pure 
manifestation of the will of God, they submitted without a murmur to the despotic 
power of kings: but from the day when we insinuated into their minds the conception 
of their own rights they began to regard the occupants of thrones as mere ordinary 
mortals. The holy unction of the Lord's Anointed has fallen from the heads of kings in 
the eyes of the people, and when we also robbed them of their faith in God the might 
of power was flung upon the streets into the place of public proprietorship and was 
seized by us. 

MASSES LED BY LI ES 

4. Moreover, the art of directing masses and individuals by means of cleverly 
manipulated theory and verbitage, by regulations of life in common and all sorts of 
other quirks, in all which the GOYIM understand nothing, belongs likewise to the 
specialists of our administrative brain. Reared on analysis, observation, on delicacies 
of fine calculation, in this species of skill we have no rivals, any more than we have 
either in the drawing up of plans of political actions and solidarity. In this respect the 
Jesuits alone might have compared with us, but we have contrived to discredit them in 
the eyes of the unthinking mob as an overt organization, while we ourselves all the 
while have kept our secret organization in the shade. However, it is probably all the 
same to the world who is its sovereign lord, whether the head of Catholicism or our 
despot of the blood of Zion! But to us, the Chosen People, it is very far from being a 
matter of indifference. 

5. FOR A Tl ME PERHAPS WE Ml GHT BE SUCCESSFULLY DEALT WITH BY A 



http://quotes.strongcity.com/protocols_of_zion.html 



3/31/01 



Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion 



Page 17 of 54 



COALITION OF THE "GOYIM" OF ALL THE WORLD: but from this danger we are 
secured by the discord existing among them whose roots are so deeply seated that 
they can never now be plucked up. We have set one against another the personal and 
national reckonings of the GOYIM, religious and race hatreds, which we have fostered 
into a huge growth in the course of the past twenty centuries. This is the reason why 
there is not one State which would anywhere receive support if it were to raise its 
arm, for every one of them must bear in mind that any agreement against us would be 
unprofitable to itself. We are too strong - there is no evading our power. THE NATIONS 
CANNOT COME TO EVEN AN INCONSIDERABLE PRIVATE AGREEMENT WITHOUT OUR 
SECRETLY HAVING A HAND IN IT. 

6. PER ME REGES REGNANT. "It is through me that Kings reign." And it was said by 
the prophets that we were chosen by God Himself to rule over the whole earth. God 
has endowed us with genius that we may be equal to our task. Were genius in the 
opposite camp it would still struggle against us, but even so, a newcomer is no match 
for the old-established settler: the struggle would be merciless between us, such a 
fight as the world has never seen. Aye, and the genius on their side would have 
arrived too late. All the wheels of the machinery of all States go by the force of the 
engine, which is in our hands, and that engine of the machinery of States is - Gold. 
The science of political economy invented by our learned elders has for long past been 
giving royal prestige to capital. 

MONOPOLY CAPITAL 

7. Capital, if it is to co-operate untrammeled, must be free to establish a monopoly 
of industry and trade: this is already being put in execution by an unseen hand in all 
quarters of the world. This freedom will give political force to those engaged in 
industry, and that will help to oppress the people. Nowadays it is more important to 
disarm the peoples than to lead them into war: more important to use for our 
advantage the passions which have burst into flames than to quench their fire: more 
important to eradicate them. THE PRI NCI PLE OBJ ECT OF OUR Dl RECTORATE 
CONSISTS IN THIS: TO DEBILITATE THE PUBLIC MIND BY CRITICISM; TO LEAD IT 
AWAY FROM SERIOUS REFLECTIONS CALCULATED TO AROUSE RESISTANCE; TO 

Dl STRACT THE FORCES OF THE MIND TOWARDS A SHAM Fl GHT OF EMPTY 
ELOQUENCE. 

8. In all ages the people of the world, equally with individuals, have accepted words 
for deeds, for THEY ARE CONTENT WITH A SHOW and rarely pause to note, in the 
public arena, whether promises are followed by performance. Therefore we shall 
establish show institutions which will give eloquent proof of their benefit to progress. 

9. We shall assume to ourselves the liberal physiognomy of all parties, of all 
directions, and we shall give that physiognomy a VOI CE I N ORATORS WHO Wl LL 
SPEAK SO MUCH THAT THEY Wl LL EXHAUST THE PATI ENCE OF THEI R HEARERS AND 
PRODUCE AN ABHORRENCE OF ORATORY. 

10. IN ORDER TO PUT PUBLIC OPINION INTO OUR HANDS WE MUST BRING IT 
INTO A STATE OF BEWILDERMENT BY GIVING EXPRESSION FROM ALL SIDES TO SO 
MANY CONTRADI CTORY OPI Nl ONS AND FOR SUCH LENGTH OF Tl ME AS Wl LL 
SUFFI CE TO MAKE THE "GOYI M" LOSE THEI R HEADS I N THE LABYRI NTH AND COME 
TO SEE THAT THE BEST THING IS TO HAVE NO OPINION OF ANY KIND IN MATTERS 
POLITICAL, which it is not given to the public to understand, because they are 
understood only by him who guides the public. This is the first secret. 



http://quotes.strongcity.com/protocols_of_zion.html 



3/31/01 



Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion 



Page 18 of 54 



11. The second secret requisite for the success of our government is comprised in 
the following: To multiply to such an extent national failings, habits, passions, 
conditions of civil life, that it will be impossible for anyone to know where he is in the 
resulting chaos, so that the people in consequence will fail to understand one another. 
This measure will also serve us in another way, namely, to sow discord in all parties, 
to dislocate all collective forces which are still unwilling to submit to us, and to 
discourage any kind of personal initiative which might in any degree hinder our affair. 
THERE IS NOTHING MORE DANGEROUS THAN PERSONAL INITIATIVE: if it has genius 
behind it, such initiative can do more than can be done by millions of people among 
whom we have sown discord. We must so direct the education of the GOYI M 
communities that whenever they come upon a matter requiring initiative they may 
drop their hands in despairing impotence. The strain which results from freedom of 
actions saps the forces when it meets with the freedom of another. From this collision 
arise grave moral shocks, disenchantments, failures. BY ALL THESE MEANS WE SHALL 
SO WEAR DOWN THE "GOYI M" THAT THEY Wl LL BE COMPELLED TO OFFER US 
INTERNATIONAL POWER OF A NATURE THAT BY ITS POSITION WILL ENABLE US 
WITHOUT ANY VIOLENCE GRADUALLY TO ABSORB ALL THE STATE FORCES OF THE 
WORLD AND TO FORM A SUPER-GOVERNMENT. 

1 n place of the rulers of to-day we shall set up a bogey which will be called the 
Super-Government Administration. Its hands will reach out in all directions like nippers 
and its organization will be of such colossal dimensions that it cannot fail to subdue all 
the nations of the world. 

Top of Protocols 



PROTOCOL No. 6 

1. We shall soon begin to establish huge monopolies, reservoirs of colossal riches, 
upon which even, large fortunes of the GOYIM will depend to such an extent that they 
will go to the bottom together with the credit of the States on the day after the 
political smash ... 

2. You gentlemen here present who are economists, just strike an estimate of the 
significance of this combination! ... 

3. In every possible way we must develop the significance of our Super- 
Government by representing it as the Protector and Benefactor of all those who 
voluntarily submit to us. 

4. The aristocracy of the GOYIM as a political force, is dead - We need not take it 
into account; but as landed proprietors they can still be harmful to us from the fact 
that they are self-sufficing in the resources upon which they live. It is essential 
therefore for us at whatever cost to deprive them of their land. This object will be best 
attained by increasing the burdens upon landed property - in loading lands with debts. 
These measures will check land- holding and keep it in a state of humble and 
unconditional submission. 

5. The aristocrats of the GOYIM, being hereditarily incapable of contenting 
themselves with little, will rapidly burn up and fizzle out.

WE SHALL ENSLAVE GENTILES 

6. At the same time we must intensively patronize trade and industry, but, first and 
foremost, speculation, the part played by which is to provide a counterpoise to 
industry: the absence of speculative industry will multiply capital in private hands and 
will serve to restore agriculture by freeing the land from indebtedness to the land 
banks. What we want is that industry should drain off from the land both labor and 
capital and by means of speculation transfer into our hands all the money of the world, 
and thereby throw all the GOYIM into the ranks of the proletariat. Then the GOYIM will 
bow down before us, if for no other reason but to get the right to exist. 

7. To complete the ruin of the industry of the GOYI M we shall bring to the 
assistance of speculation the luxury which we have developed among the GOYIM, that 
greedy demand for luxury which is swallowing up everything. WE SHALL RAISE THE 
RATE OF WAGES WHI CH, HOWEVER, Wl LL NOT BRI NG ANY ADVANTAGE TO THE 
WORKERS, FOR, AT THE SAME TIME, WE SHALL PRODUCE A RISE IN PRICES OF THE 
FIRST NECESSARIES OF LIFE, ALLEGING THAT IT ARISES FROM THE DECLINE OF 
AGRICULTURE AND CATTLE-BREEDING: WE SHALL FURTHER UNDERMINE ARTFULLY 
AND DEEPLY SOURCES OF PRODUCTION, BY ACCUSTOMI NG THE WORKERS TO 
ANARCHY AND TO DRUNKENNESS AND SI DE BY SI DE THEREWITH TAKI NG ALL 
MEASURE TO EXTIRPATE FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH ALL THE EDUCATED FORCES 
OF THE "GOYIM." 

8. I N ORDER THAT THE TRUE MEANI NG OF THI NGS MAY NOT STRI KE THE "GOYI M" 
BEFORE THE PROPER Tl ME WE SHALL MASK IT UNDER AN ALLEGED ARDENT DESI RE 
TO SERVE THE WORKING CLASSES AND THE GREAT PRINCIPLES OF POLITICAL 
ECONOMY ABOUT WHICH OUR ECONOMIC THEORIES ARE CARRYING ON AN 
ENERGETIC PROPAGANDA 

Top of Protocols 



PROTOCOL No. 7 

1. The intensification of armaments, the increase of police forces - are all essential 
for the completion of the aforementioned plans. What we have to get at is that there 
should be in all the States of the world, besides ourselves, only the masses of the 
proletariat, a few millionaires devoted to our interests, police and soldiers. 

2. Throughout all Europe, and by means of relations with Europe, in other 
continents also, we must create ferments, discords and hostility. Therein we gain a 
double advantage. In the first place we keep in check all countries, for they will know 
that we have the power whenever we like to create disorders or to restore order. All 
these countries are accustomed to see in us an indispensable force of coercion. In the 
second place, by our intrigues we shall tangle up all the threads which we have 
stretched into the cabinets of all States by means of the political, by economic 
treaties, or loan obligations. In order to succeed in this we must use great cunning and 
penetration during negotiations and agreements, but, as regards what is called the 
"official language," we shall keep to the opposite tactics and assume the mask of 
honesty and complacency. In this way the peoples and governments of the GOYIM, 
whom we have taught to look only at the outside whatever we present to their notice, 



http://quotes.strongcity.com/protocols_of_zion.html 



3/31/01 



Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion 



Page 20 of 54 



will still continue to accept us as the benefactors and saviours of the human race. 

UNIVERSAL WAR 

3. We must be in a position to respond to every act of opposition by war with the 
neighbors of that country which dares to oppose us: but if these neighbors should also 
venture to stand collectively together against us, then we must offer resistance by a 
universal war. 

4. The principal factor of success in the political is the secrecy of its undertakings: 
the word should not agree with the deeds of the diplomat. 

5. We must compel the governments of the GOYI M to take action in the direction 
favored by our widely conceived plan, already approaching the desired consummation, 
by what we shall represent as public opinion, secretly promoted by us through the 
means of that so-called "Great Power" - THE PRESS, WHICH, WITH A FEW 
EXCEPTIONS THAT MAY BE DISREGARDED, IS ALREADY ENTIRELY IN OUR HANDS. 

In a word, to sum up our system of keeping the governments of the goyim in 
Europe in check, we shall show our strength to one of them by terrorist attempts and 
to all, if we allow the possibility of a general rising against us, we shall respond with 
the guns of America or China or J apan.

PROTOCOL No. 8 

1. We must arm ourselves with all the weapons which our opponents might employ 
against us. We must search out in the very finest shades of expression and the knotty 
points of the lexicon of law justification for those cases where we shall have to 
pronounce judgments that might appear abnormally audacious and unjust, for it is 
important that these resolutions should be set forth in expressions that shall seem to 
be the most exalted moral principles cast into legal form. Our directorate must 
surround itself with all these forces of civilization among which it will have to work. It 
will surround itself with publicists, practical jurists, administrators, diplomats and, 
finally, with persons prepared by a special super-educational training IN OUR SPECIAL 
SCHOOLS. These persons will have consonance of all the secrets of the social 
structure, they will know all the languages that can be made up by political alphabets 
and words; they will be made acquainted with the whole underside of human nature, 
with all its sensitive chords on which they will have to play. These chords are the cast 
of mind of the GOYI M, their tendencies, short-comings, vices and qualities, the 
particularities of classes and conditions. Needless to say that the talented assistants of 
authority, of whom I speak, will be taken not from among the GOYIM, who are 
accustomed to perform their administrative work without giving themselves the 
trouble to think what its aim is, and never consider what it is needed for. The 
administrators of the GOYIM sign papers without reading them, and they serve either 
for mercenary reasons or from ambition. 

2. We shall surround our government with a whole world of economists. That is the 
reason why economic sciences form the principal subject of the teaching given to the

capitalists and - THE MAIN THING - MILLIONAIRES, BECAUSE IN SUBSTANCE 
EVERYTHI NG Wl LL BE SETTLED BY THE QUESTI ON OF Fl GURES. 

3. For a time, until there will no longer be any risk in entrusting responsible posts in 
our State to our brother-Jews, we shall put them in the hands of persons whose past 
and reputation are such that between them and the people lies an abyss, persons 
who, in case of disobedience to our instructions, must face criminal charges or 
disappear - this in order to make them defend our interests to their last gasp.

PROTOCOL No. 9 

1. In applying our principles let attention be paid to the character of the people in 
whose country you live and act; a general, identical application of them, until such 
time as the people shall have been re-educated to our pattern, cannot have success. 
But by approaching their application cautiously you will see that not a decade will pass 
before the most stubborn character will change and we shall add a new people to the 
ranks of those already subdued by us. 

2. The words of the liberal, which are in effect the words of our masonic watchword, 
namely, "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity," will, when we come into our kingdom, be 
changed by us into words no longer of a watchword, but only an expression of 
idealism, namely, into "The right of liberty, the duty of equality, the ideal of 
brotherhood." That is how we shall put it, - and so we shall catch the bull by the 
horns ... DE FACTO we have already wiped out every kind of rule except our own, 
although DE J URE there still remain a good many of them. Nowadays, if any States 
raise a protest against us it is only PRO FORMA at our discretion and by our direction, 
for THEIR ANTI-SEMITISM IS INDISPENSABLE TO US FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF OUR 
LESSER BRETHREN. I will not enter into further explanations, for this matter has 
formed the subject of repeated discussions amongst us. 

JEWISH SUPER-STATE 

3. For us there are not checks to limit the range of our activity. Our Super- 
Government subsists in extra- legal conditions which are described in the accepted 
terminology by the energetic and forcible word - Dictatorship. I am in a position to tell 
you with a clear conscience that at the proper time we, the law-givers, shall execute 
judgment and sentence, we shall slay and we shall spare, we, as head of all our 
troops, are mounted on the steed of the leader. We rule by force of will, because in 
our hands are the fragments of a once powerful party, now vanquished by us. AND 
THE WEAPONS IN OUR HANDS ARE LIMITLESS AMBITIONS, BURNING GREEDINESS, 
MERCILESS VENGEANCE, HATREDS AND MALICE. 

4. IT IS FROM US THAT THE ALL- ENGULFI NG TERROR PROCEEDS. WE HAVE IN 
OUR SERVI CE PERSONS OF ALL OPI Nl ONS, OF ALL DOCTRI NES, RESTORATI NG 
MONARCHISTS, DEMAGOGUES, SOCIALISTS, COMMUNISTS, AND UTOPIAN 
DREAMERS OF EVERY KIND. We have harnessed them all to the task: EACH ONE OF 
THEM ON HIS OWN ACCOUNT IS BORING AWAY AT THE LAST REMNANTS OF

AUTHORITY, IS STRIVING TO OVERTHROW ALL ESTABLISHED FORM OF ORDER. By 
these acts all States are in torture; they exhort to tranquility, are ready to sacrifice 
everything for peace: BUT WE Wl LL NOT Gl VE THEM PEACE UNTI L THEY OPENLY 
ACKNOWLEDGE OUR INTERNATIONAL SUPER-GOVERNMENT, AND WITH 
SUBMISSIVENESS. 

5. The people have raised a howl about the necessity of settling the question of 
Socialism by way of an international agreement. DIVISION INTO FRACTIONAL 
PARTIES HAS GIVEN THEM INTO OUR HANDS, FOR, IN ORDER TO CARRY ON A 
CONTESTED STRUGGLE ONE MUST HAVE MONEY, AND THE MONEY IS ALL IN OUR 
HANDS. 

6. We might have reason to apprehend a union between the "clear-sighted" force of 
the GOY kings on their thrones and the "blind" force of the GOY mobs, but we have 
taken all the needful measure against any such possibility: between the one and the 
other force we have erected a bulwark in the shape of a mutual terror between them. 
In this way the blind force of the people remains our support and we, and we only, 
shall provide them with a leader and, of course, direct them along the road that leads 
to our goal. 

7. I n order that the hand of the blind mob may not free itself from our guiding 
hand, we must every now and then enter into close communion with it, if not actually 
in person, at any rate through some of the most trusty of our brethren. When we are 
acknowledged as the only authority we shall discuss with the people personally on the 
market, places, and we shall instruct them on questings of the political in such wise as 
may turn them in the direction that suits us. 

8. Who is going to verify what is taught in the village schools? But what an envoy of 
the government or a king on his throne himself may say cannot but become 
immediately known to the whole State, for it will be spread abroad by the voice of the 
people. 

9. I n order to annihilate the institutions of the GOYI M before it is time we have 
touched them with craft and delicacy, and have taken hold of the ends of the springs 
which move their mechanism. These springs lay in a strict but just sense of order; we 
have replaced them by the chaotic license of liberalism. We have got our hands into 
the administration of the law, into the conduct of elections, into the press, into liberty 
of the person, BUT PRINCIPALLY INTO EDUCATION AND TRAINING AS BEING THE 
CORNERSTONES OF A FREE EXISTENCE. 

CHRISTIAN YOUTH DESTROYED 

10. WE HAVE FOOLED, BEMUSED AND CORRUPTED THE YOUTH OF THE "GOYI M" 
BY REARI NG THEM I N PRI NCI PLES AND THEORI ES WHI CH ARE KNOWN TO US TO BE 
FALSE ALTHOUGH IT IS THAT THEY HAVE BEEN INCULCATED. 

11. Above the existing laws without substantially altering them, and by merely 
twisting them into contradictions of interpretations, we have erected something 
grandiose in the way of results. These results found expression in the fact that the 
I NTERPRETATI ONS MASKED THE LAW: afterwards they entirely hid them from the 
eyes of the governments owing to the impossibility of making anything out of the 
tangled web of legislation.

12. This is the origin of the theory of course of arbitration. 

13. You may say that the GOYIM will rise upon us, arms in hand, if they guess what 
is going on before the time comes; but in the West we have against this a maneuver 
of such appalling terror that the very stoutest hearts quail - the undergrounds, 
metropolitans, those subterranean corridors which, before the time comes, will be 
driven under all the capitals and from whence those capitals will be blown into the air 
with all their organizations and archives. 

Top of Protocols 



PROTOCOL No. 10 

1. To-day I begin with a repetition of what I said before, and I BEG YOU TO BEAR 
IN MIND THAT GOVERNMENTS AND PEOPLE ARE CONTENT IN THE POLITICAL WITH 
OUTSIDE APPEARANCES. And how, indeed, are the GOYIM to perceive the underlying 
meaning of things when their representatives give the best of their energies to 
enjoying themselves? For our policy it is of the greatest importance to take cognizance 
of this detail; it will be of assistance to us when we come to consider the division of 
authority of property, of the dwelling, of taxation (the idea of concealed taxes), of the 
reflex force of the laws. All these questions are such as ought not to be touched upon 
directly and openly before the people. In cases where it is indispensable to touch upon 
them they must not be categorically named, it must merely be declared without 
detailed exposition that the principles of contemporary law are acknowledged by us. 
The reason of keeping silence in this respect is that by not naming a principle we leave 
ourselves freedom of action, to drop this or that out of it without attracting notice; if 
they were all categorically named they would all appear to have been already given. 

2. The mob cherishes a special affection and respect for the geniuses of political 
power and accepts all their deeds of violence with the admiring response: "rascally, 
well, yes, it is rascally, but it's clever! ... a trick, if you like, but how craftily played, 
how magnificently done, what impudent audacity!" ... 

OUR GOAL - WORLD POWER 

3. We count upon attracting all nations to the task of erecting the new fundamental 
structure, the project for which has been drawn up by us. This is why, before 
everything, it is indispensable for us to arm ourselves and to store up in ourselves that 
absolutely reckless audacity and irresistible might of the spirit which in the person of 
our active workers will break down all hindrances on our way. 

4. WHEN WE HAVE ACCOMPLISHED OUR COUP D'ETAT WE SHALL SAY THEN TO 
THE VARIOUS PEOPLES: "EVERYTHING HAS GONE TERRIBLY BADLY, ALL HAVE BEEN 
WORN OUT WITH SUFFERI NG. WE ARE DESTROYI NG THE CAUSES OF YOUR TORMENT 
- NATIONALITIES, FRONTIERS, DIFFERENCES OF COINAGES. YOU ARE AT LIBERTY, 
OF COURSE, TO PRONOUNCE SENTENCE UPON US, BUT CAN IT POSSI BLY BE A J UST 
ONE IF IT IS CONFIRMED BY YOU BEFORE YOU MAKE ANY TRIAL OF WHAT WE ARE 
OFFERING YOU." ... THEN WILL THE MOB EXALT US AND BEAR US UP IN THEIR 
HANDS IN A UNANIMOUS TRIUMPH OF HOPES AND EXPECTATIONS. VOTING, WHICH 
WE HAVE MADE THE INSTRUMENT WHICH WILL SET US ON THE THRONE OF THE

WORLD BY TEACHING EVEN THE VERY SMALLEST UNITS OF MEMBERS OF THE HUMAN 
RACE TO VOTE BY MEANS OF MEETI NGS AND AGREEMENTS BY GROUPS, Wl LL THEN 
HAVE SERVED ITS PURPOSES AND Wl LL PLAY ITS PART THEN FOR THE LAST Tl ME BY 
A UNANIMITY OF DESIRE TO MAKE CLOSE ACQUAINTANCE WITH US BEFORE 
CONDEMNING US. 

5. TO SECURE THIS WE MUST HAVE EVERYBODY VOTE WITHOUT DISTINCTION OF 
CLASSES AND QUALIFICATIONS, in order to establish an absolute majority, which 
cannot be got from the educated propertied classes. In this way, by inculcating in all a 
sense of self-importance, we shall destroy among the GOYIM the importance of the 
family and its educational value and remove the possibility of individual minds splitting 
off, for the mob, handled by us, will not let them come to the front nor even give them 
a hearing; it is accustomed to listen to us only who pay it for obedience and attention. 
In this way we shall create a blind, mighty force which will never be in a position to 
move in any direction without the guidance of our agents set at its head by us as 
leaders of the mob. The people will submit to this regime because it will know that 
upon these leaders will depend its earnings, gratifications and the receipt of all kinds 
of benefits. 

6. A scheme of government should come ready made from one brain, because it 
will never be clinched firmly if it is allowed to be split into fractional parts in the minds 
of many. It is allowable, therefore, for us to have cognizance of the scheme of action 
but not to discuss it lest we disturb its artfulness, the interdependence of its 
component parts, the practical force of the secret meaning of each clause. To discuss 
and make alterations in a labor of this kind by means of numerous votings is to 
impress upon it the stamp of all ratiocinations and misunderstandings which have 
failed to penetrate the depth and nexus of its plotting. We want our schemes to be 
forcible and suitably concocted. Therefore WE OUGHT NOT TO FLING THE WORK OF 
GENI US OF OUR GUI DE to the fangs of the mob or even of a select company. 

7. These schemes will not turn existing institutions upside down just yet. They will 
only effect changes in their economy and consequently in the whole combined 
movement of their progress, which will thus be directed along the paths laid down in 
our schemes. 

POI SON OF LI BERALI SM 

8. Under various names there exists in all countries approximately one and the 
same thing. Representation, Ministry, Senate, State Council, Legislative and Executive 
Corps. I need not explain to you the mechanism of the relation of these institutions to 
one another, because you are aware of all that; only take note of the fact that each of 
the above-named institutions corresponds to some important function of the State, 
and I would beg you to remark that the word "important" I apply not to the institution 
but to the function, consequently it is not the institutions which are important but their 
functions. These institutions have divided up among themselves all the functions of 
government - administrative, legislative, executive, wherefore they have come to 
operate as do the organs in the human body. If we injure one part in the machinery of 
State, the State falls sick, like a human body, and ... will die. 

9. When we introduced into the State organism the poison of Liberalism its whole 
political complexion underwent a change. States have been seized with a mortal illness 
- blood poisoning. All that remains is to await the end of their death agony.

10. Liberalism produced Constitutional States, which took the place of what was the 
only safeguard of the GOYIM, namely, Despotism; and A CONSTITUTION, AS YOU 
WELL KNOW, IS NOTHING ELSE BUT A SCHOOL OF DISCORDS, misunderstandings, 
quarrels, disagreements, fruitless party agitations, party whims - in a word, a school 
of everything that serves to destroy the personality of State activity. THE TRIBUNE OF 
THE "TALKERI CS" HAS, NO LESS EFFECTIVELY THAN THE PRESS, CONDEMNED THE 
RULERS TO INACTIVITY AND IMPOTENCE, and thereby rendered them useless and 
superfluous, for which reason indeed they have been in many countries deposed. 
THEN IT WAS THAT THE ERA OF REPUBLICS BECOME POSSIBLE OF REALIZATION; 
AND THEN IT WAS THAT WE REPLACED THE RULER BY A CARICATURE OF A 
GOVERNMENT - BY A PRESI DENT, TAKEN FROM THE MOB, FROM THE Ml DST OF OUR 
PUPPET CREATURES, OR SLAVES. This was the foundation of the mine which we have 
laid under the GOY people, I should rather say, under the GOY peoples. 

WE NAME PRESIDENTS 

11. In the near future we shall establish the responsibility of presidents. 

12. By that time we shall be in a position to disregard forms in carrying through 
matters for which our impersonal puppet will be responsible. What do we care if the 
ranks of those striving for power should be thinned, if there should arise a deadlock 
from the impossibility of finding presidents, a deadlock which will finally disorganize 
the country? ... 

13. In order that our scheme may produce this result we shall arrange elections in 
favor of such presidents as have in their past some dark, undiscovered stain, some 
"Panama" or other - then they will be trustworthy agents for the accomplishment of 
our plans out of fear of revelations and from the natural desire of everyone who has 
attained power, namely, the retention of the privileges, advantages and honor 
connected with the office of president. The chamber of deputies will provide cover for, 
will protect, will elect presidents, but we shall take from it the right to propose new, or 
make changes in existing laws, for this right will be given by us to the responsible 
president, a puppet in our hands. Naturally, the authority of the presidents will then 
become a target for every possible form of attack, but we shall provide him with a 
means of self-defense in the right of an appeal to the people, for the decision of the 
people over the heads of their representatives, that is to say, an appeal to that some 
blind slave of ours - the majority of the mob. I ndependently of this we shall invest the 
president with the right of declaring a state of war. We shall justify this last right on 
the ground that the president as chief of the whole army of the country must have it 
at his disposal, in case of need for the defense of the new republican constitution, the 
right to defend which will belong to him as the responsible representative of this 
constitution. 

14. It is easy to understand them in these conditions the key of the shrine will lie in 
our hands, and no one outside ourselves will any longer direct the force of legislation. 

15. Besides this we shall, with the introduction of the new republican constitution, 
take from the Chamber the right of interpolation on government measures, on the 
pretext of preserving political secrecy, and, further, we shall by the new constitution 
reduce the number of representatives to a minimum, thereby proportionately reducing 
political passions and the passion for politics. If, however, they should, which is hardly 
to be expected, burst into flame, even in this minimum, we shall nullify them by a 
stirring appeal and a reference to the majority of the whole people ... Upon the 
president will depend the appointment of presidents and vice-presidents of the 



http://quotes.strongcity.com/protocols_of_zion.html 



3/31/01 



Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion 



Page 26 of 54 



Chamber and the Senate. Instead of constant sessions of Parliaments we shall reduce 
their sittings to a few months. Moreover, the president, as chief of the executive 
power, will have the right to summon and dissolve Parliament, and, in the latter case, 
to prolong the time for the appointment of a new parliamentary assembly. But in order 
that the consequences of all these acts which in substance are illegal, should not, 
prematurely for our plans, upon the responsibility established by use of the president, 
WE SHALL INSTIGATE MINISTERS AND OTHER OFFICIALS OF THE HIGHER 
ADMINISTRATION ABOUT THE PRESIDENT TO EVADE HIS DISPOSITIONS BY TAKING 
MEASURES OF THEIR OWN, for doing which they will be made the scapegoats in his 
place ... This part we especially recommend to be given to be played by the Senate, 
the Council of State, or the Council of Ministers, but not to an individual official. 

16. The president will, at our discretion, interpret the sense of such of the existing 
laws as admit of various interpretation; he will further annul them when we indicate to 
him the necessity to do so, besides this, he will have the right to propose temporary 
laws, and even new departures in the government constitutional working, the pretext 
both for the one and the other being the requirements for the supreme welfare of the 
State. 

WE SHALL DESTROY 

17. By such measure we shall obtain the power of destroying little by little, step by 
step, all that at the outset when we enter on our rights, we are compelled to introduce 
into the constitutions of States to prepare for the transition to an imperceptible 
abolition of every kind of constitution, and then the time is come to turn every form of 
government into OUR DESPOTISM. 

18. The recognition of our despot may also come before the destruction of the 
constitution; the moment for this recognition will come when the peoples, utterly 
wearied by the irregularities and incompetence - a matter which we shall arrange for - 
of their rulers, will clamor: "Away with them and give us one king over all the earth 
who will unite us and annihilate the causes of disorders - frontiers, nationalities, 
religions, State debts - who will give us peace and quiet which we cannot find under 
our rulers and representatives." 

19. But you yourselves perfectly well know that TO PRODUCE THE POSSI Bl LITY OF 
THE EXPRESSION OF SUCH WISHES BY ALL THE NATIONS IT IS INDISPENSABLE TO 
TROUBLE IN ALL COUNTRIES THE PEOPLE'S RELATIONS WITH THEIR GOVERNMENTS 
SO AS TO UTTERLY EXHAUST HUMANITY WITH DISSENSION, HATRED, STRUGGLE, 
ENVY AND EVEN BY THE USE OF TORTURE, BY STARVATION, BY THE INOCULATION 
OF DISEASES, BY WANT, SO THAT THE "GOYI M" SEE NO OTHER ISSUE THAN TO TAKE 
REFUGE IN OUR COMPLETE SOVEREIGNTY IN MONEY AND IN ALL ELSE. 

20. But if we give the nations of the world a breathing space the moment we long 
for is hardly likely ever to arrive.

1. The State Council has been, as it were, the emphatic expression of the authority 
of the ruler: it will be, as the "show" part of the Legislative Corps, what may be called 
the editorial committee of the laws and decrees of the ruler. 

2. This, then, is the program of the new constitution. We shall make Law, Right and 
Justice (1) in the guise of proposals to the Legislative Corps, (2) by decrees of the 
president under the guise of general regulations, of orders of the Senate and of 
resolutions of the State Council in the guise of ministerial orders, (3) and in case a 
suitable occasion should arise - in the form of a revolution in the State. 

3. Having established approximately the MODUS AGENDI we will occupy ourselves 
with details of those combinations by which we have still to complete the revolution in 
the course of the machinery of State in the direction already indicated. By these 
combinations I mean the freedom of the Press, the right of association, freedom of 
conscience, the voting principle, and many another that must disappear for ever from 
the memory of man, or undergo a radical alteration the day after the promulgation of 
the new constitution. It is only at the moment that we shall be able at once to 
announce all our orders, for, afterwards, every noticeable alteration will be dangerous, 
for the following reasons: if this alteration be brought in with harsh severity and in a 
sense of severity and limitations, it may lead to a feeling of despair caused by fear of 
new alterations in the same direction; if, on the other hand, it be brought in a sense of 
further indulgences it will be said that we have recognized our own wrong-doing and 
this will destroy the prestige of the infallibility of our authority, or else it will be said 
that we have become alarmed and are compelled to show a yielding disposition, for 
which we shall get no thanks because it will be supposed to be compulsory ... Both the 
one and the other are injurious to the prestige of the new constitution. What we want 
is that from the first moment of its promulgation, while the peoples of the world are 
still stunned by the accomplished fact of the revolution, still in a condition of terror 
and uncertainty, they should recognize once for all that we are so strong, so 
inexpugnable, so super-abundantly filled with power, that in no case shall we take any 
account of them, and so far from paying any attention to their opinions or wishes, we 
are ready and able to crush with irresistible power all expression or manifestation 
thereof at every moment and in every place, that we have seized at once everything 
we wanted and shall in no case divide our power with them ... Then in fear and 
trembling they will close their eyes to everything, and be content to await what will be 
the end of it all. 

WE ARE WOLVES 

4. The GOYIM are a flock of sheep, and we are their wolves. And you know what 
happens when the wolves get hold of the flock? .... 

5. There is another reason also why they will close their eyes: for we shall keep 
promising them to give back all the liberties we have taken away as soon as we have 
quelled the enemies of peace and tamed all parties .... 

6. It is not worth to say anything about how long a time they will be kept waiting 
for this return of their liberties .... 

7. For what purpose then have we invented this whole policy and insinuated it into 
the minds of the GOY without giving them any chance to examine its underlying 
meaning? For what, indeed, if not in order to obtain in a roundabout way what is for 
our scattered tribe unattainable by the direct road? It is this which has served as the

WHICH ARE NOT EVEN SO MUCH AS SUSPECTED BY, THESE "GOY" CATTLE, 
ATTRACTED BY US INTO THE "SHOW" ARMY OF MASONIC LODGES IN ORDER TO 
THROW DUST IN THE EYES OF THEIR FELLOWS. 

8. God has granted to us, His Chosen People, the gift of the dispersion, and in this 
which appears in all eyes to be our weakness, has come forth all our strength, which 
has now brought us to the threshold of sovereignty over all the world. 

9. There now remains not much more for us to build up upon the foundation we 
have laid. 

Top of Protocols 



PROTOCOL No. 12 

1. The word "freedom," which can be interpreted in various ways, is defined by us 
as follows - 

2. Freedom is the right to do what which the law allows. This interpretation of the 
word will at the proper time be of service to us, because all freedom will thus be in our 
hands, since the laws will abolish or create only that which is desirable for us 
according to the aforesaid program. 

3. We shall deal with the press in the following way: what is the part played by the 
press to-day? It serves to excite and inflame those passions which are needed for our 
purpose or else it serves selfish ends of parties. It is often vapid, unjust, mendacious, 
and the majority of the public have not the slightest idea what ends the press really 
serves. We shall saddle and bridle it with a tight curb: we shall do the same also with 
all productions of the printing press, for where would be the sense of getting rid of the 
attacks of the press if we remain targets for pamphlets and books? The produce of 
publicity, which nowadays is a source of heavy expense owing to the necessity of 
censoring it, will be turned by us into a very lucrative source of income to our State: 
we shall law on it a special stamp tax and require deposits of caution- money before 
permitting the establishment of any organ of the press or of printing offices; these will 
then have to guarantee our government against any kind of attack on the part of the 
press. For any attempt to attack us, if such still be possible, we shall inflict fines 
without mercy. Such measures as stamp tax, deposit of caution-money and fines 
secured by these deposits, will bring in a huge income to the government. It is true 
that party organs might not spare money for the sake of publicity, but these we shall 
shut up at the second attack upon us. No one shall with impunity lay a finger on the 
aureole of our government infallibility. The pretext for stopping any publication will be 
the alleged plea that it is agitating the public mind without occasion or justification. I 
BEG YOU TO NOTE THAT AMONG THOSE MAKI NG ATTACKS UPON US Wl LL ALSO BE 
ORGANS ESTABLISHED BY US, BUT THEY Wl LL ATTACK EXCLUSI VELY POI NTS THAT 
WE HAVE PRE-DETERMI NED TO ALTER. 

WE CONTROL THE PRESS 

4. NOTA SINGLE ANNOUNCEMENT Wl LL REACH THE PUBLIC WITHOUT OUR 



http://quotes.strongcity.com/protocols_of_zion.html

Page 29 of 54 



CONTROL. Even now this is already being attained by us inasmuch as all news items 
are received by a few agencies, in whose offices they are focused from all parts of the 
world. These agencies will then be already entirely ours and will give publicity only to 
what we dictate to them. 

5. If already now we have contrived to possess ourselves of the minds of the GOY 
communities to such an extent the they all come near looking upon the events of the 
world through the colored glasses of those spectacles we are setting astride their 
noses; if already now there is not a single State where there exist for us any barriers 
to admittance into what GOY stupidity calls State secrets: what will our positions be 
then, when we shall be acknowledged supreme lords of the world in the person of our 
king of all the world .... 

6. Let us turn again to the FUTURE OF THE PRINTING PRESS. Every one desirous of 
being a publisher, librarian, or printer, will be obliged to provide himself with the 
diploma instituted therefore, which, in case of any fault, will be immediately 
impounded. With such measures THE INSTRUMENT OF THOUGHT WILL BECOME AN 
EDUCATIVE MEANS ON THE HANDS OF OUR GOVERNMENT, WHICH WILL NO LONGER 
ALLOW THE MASS OF THE NATI ON TO BE LED ASTRAY I N BY-WAYS AND FANTASI ES 
ABOUT THE BLESSINGS OF PROGRESS. Is there any one of us who does not know that 
these phantom blessings are the direct roads to foolish imaginings which give birth to 
anarchical relations of men among themselves and towards authority, because 
progress, or rather the idea of progress, has introduced the conception of every kind 
of emancipation, but has failed to establish its limits .... All the so-called liberals are 
anarchists, if not in fact, at any rate in thought. Every one of them in hunting after 
phantoms of freedom, and falling exclusively into license, that is, into the anarchy of 
protest for the sake of protest .... 

FREE PRESS DESTROYED 

7. We turn to the periodical press. We shall impose on it, as on all printed matter, 
stamp taxes per sheet and deposits of caution- money, and books of less than 30 
sheets will pay double. We shall reckon them as pamphlets in order, on the one hand, 
to reduce the number of magazines, which are the worst form of printed poison, and, 
on the other, in order that this measure may force writers into such lengthy 
productions that they will be little read, especially as they will be costly. At the same 
time what we shall publish ourselves to influence mental development in the direction 
laid down for our profit will be cheap and will be read voraciously. The tax will bring 
vapid literary ambitions within bounds and the liability to penalties will make literary 
men dependent upon us. And if there should be any found who are desirous of writing 
against us, they will not find any person eager to print their productions in print the 
publisher or printer will have to apply to the authorities for permission to do so. Thus 
we shall know beforehand of all tricks preparing against us and shall nullify them by 
getting ahead with explanations on the subject treated of. 

8. Literature and journalism are two of the most important educative forces, and 
therefore our government will become proprietor of the majority of the journals. This 
will neutralize the injurious influence of the privately-owned press and will put us in 
possession of a tremendous influence upon the public mind .... If we give permits for 
ten journals, we shall ourselves found thirty, and so on in the same proportion. This, 
however, must in no wise be suspected by the public. For which reason all journals 
published by us will be of the most opposite, in appearance, tendencies and opinions, 
thereby creating confidence in us and bringing over to us quite unsuspicious 
opponents, who will thus fall into our trap and be rendered harmless.

9. In the front rank will stand organs of an official character. They will always stand 
guard over our interests, and therefore their influence will be comparatively 
insignificant. 

10. In the second rank will be the semi-official organs, whose part it will be to 
attack the tepid and indifferent. 

11. In the third rank we shall set up our own, to all appearance, off position, which, 
in at least one of its organs, will present what looks like the very antipodes to us. Our 
real opponents at heart will accept this simulated opposition as their own and will 
show us their cards. 

12. All our newspapers will be of all possible complexions - aristocratic, republican, 
revolutionary, even anarchical - for so long, of course, as the constitution exists .... 
Like the Indian idol "Vishnu" they will have a hundred hands, and every one of them 
will have a finger on any one of the public opinions as required. When a pulse quickens 
these hands will lead opinion in the direction of our aims, for an excited patient loses 
all power of judgment and easily yields to suggestion. Those fools who will think they 
are repeating the opinion of a newspaper of their own camp will be repeating our 
opinion or any opinion that seems desirable for us. In the vain belief that they are 
following the organ of their party they will, in fact, follow the flag which we hang out 
for them. 

13. In order to direct our newspaper militia in this sense we must take special and 
minute care in organizing this matter. Under the title of central department of the 
press we shall institute literary gatherings at which our agents will without attracting 
attention issue the orders and watchwords of the day. By discussing and 
controverting, but always superficially, without touching the essence of the matter, 
our organs will carry on a sham fight fusillade with the official newspapers solely for 
the purpose of giving occasion for us to express ourselves more fully than could well 
be done from the outset in official announcements, whenever, of course, that is to our 
advantage. 

14. THESE ATTACKS UPON US Wl LL ALSO SERVE ANOTHER PURPOSE, NAMELY, 
THAT OUR SUBJ ECTS Wl LL BE CONVI NCED TO THE EXI STENCE OF FULL FREEDOM OF 
SPEECH AND SO GIVE OUR AGENTS AN OCCASION TO AFFIRM THAT ALL ORGANS 
WHICH OPPOSE US ARE EMPTY BABBLERS, since they are incapable of finding any 
substantial objections to our orders. 

ONLY LIES PRINTED 

15. Methods of organization like these, imperceptible to the public eye but 
absolutely sure, are the best calculated to succeed in bringing the attention and the 
confidence of the public to the side of our government. Thanks to such methods we 
shall be in a position as from time to time may be required, to excite or to tranquilize 
the public mind on political questions, to persuade or to confuse, printing now truth, 
now lies, facts or their contradictions, according as they may be well or ill received, 
always very cautiously feeling our ground before stepping upon it .... WE SHALL HAVE 
A SURE TRI UMPH OVER OUR OPPONENTS SI NCE THEY Wl LL NOT HAVE AT THEI R 
DISPOSITION ORGANS OF THE PRESS IN WHICH THEY CAN GIVE FULL AND FINAL 
EXPRESSION TO THEIR VIEWS owing to the aforesaid methods of dealing with the 
press. We shall not even need to refute them except very superficially.

16. Trial shots like these, fired by us in the third rank of our press, in case of need, 
will be energetically refuted by us in our semi-official organs. 

17. Even nowadays, already, to take only the French press, there are forms which 
reveal masonic solidarity in acting on the watchword: all organs of the press are 
bound together by professional secrecy; like the augurs of old, not one of their 
numbers will give away the secret of his sources of information unless it be resolved to 
make announcement of them. Not one journalist will venture to betray this secret, for 
not one of them is ever admitted to practice literature unless his whole past has some 
disgraceful sore or other .... These sores would be immediately revealed. So long as 
they remain the secret of a few the prestige of the journalist attacks the majority of 
the country - the mob follow after him with enthusiasm. 

18. Our calculations are especially extended to the provinces. It is indispensable for 
us to inflame there those hopes and impulses with which we could at any moment fall 
upon the capital, and we shall represent to the capitals that these expressions are the 
independent hopes and impulses of the provinces. Naturally, the source of them will 
be always one and the same - ours. WHAT WE NEED I S THAT, UNTI L SUCH Tl ME AS 
WE ARE I N THE PLENITUDE POWER, THE CAPITALS SHOULD Fl ND THEMSELVES 
STIFLED BY THE PROVINCIAL OPINION OF THE NATIONS, I.E., OF A MAJORITY 
ARRANGED BY OUR AGENTUR. What we need is that at the psychological moment the 
capitals should not be in a position to discuss an accomplished fact for the simple 
reason, if for no other, that it has been accepted by the public opinion of a majority in 
the provinces. 19. WHEN WE ARE IN THE PERIOD OF THE NEW REGIME 
TRANSITIONAL TO THAT OF OUR ASSUMPTION OF FULL SOVEREIGNTY WE MUST NOT 
ADMIT ANY REVELATION BY THE PRESS OF ANY FORM OF PUBLIC DISHONESTY; IT IS 
NECESSARY THAT THE NEW REGI ME SHOULD BE THOUGHT TO HAVE SO PERFECTLY 
CONTENDED EVERYBODY THAT EVEN CRIMI NALITY HAS DISAPPEARED ... Cases of 
the manifestation of criminality should remain known only to their victims and to 
chance witnesses - no more.

PROTOCOL No. 13 

1. The need for daily forces the GOY1M to keep silence and be our humble servants. 
Agents taken on to our press from among the GOYIM will at our orders discuss 
anything which it is inconvenient for us to issue directly in official documents, and we 
meanwhile, quietly amid the din of the discussion so raised, shall simply take and 
carry through such measures as we wish and then offer them to the public as an 
accomplished fact. No one will dare to demand the abrogation of a matter once 
settled, all the more so as it will be represented as an improvement ... And 
immediately the press will distract the current of thought towards, new questions, 
(have we not trained people always to be seeking something new?). Into the 
discussions of these new questions will throw themselves those of the brainless 
dispensers of fortunes who are not able even now to understand that they have not 
the remotest conception about the matters which they undertake to discuss. Questions 
of the political are unattainable for any save those who have guided it already for 
many ages, the creators. 

2. From all this you will see that in seeming the opinion of the mob we are only

facilitating the working of our machinery, and you may remark that it is not for actions 
but for words issued by us on this or that question that we seem to seek approval. We 
are constantly making public declaration that we are guided in all our undertakings by 
the hope, joined to the conviction, that we are serving the common weal. 

WE DECEIVE WORKERS 

3. In order to distract people who may be too troublesome from discussions of 
questions of the political we are now putting forward what we allege to be new 
questions of the political, namely, questions of industry. In this sphere let them 
discuss themselves silly! The masses are agreed to remain inactive, to take a rest 
from what they suppose to be political (which we trained them to in order to use them 
as a means of combating the GOY governments) only on condition of being found new 
employments, in which we are prescribing them something that looks like the same 
political object. In order that the masses themselves may not guess what they are 
about WE FURTHER DISTRACT THEM WITH AMUSEMENTS, GAMES, PASTIMES, 
PASSIONS, PEOPLE'S PALACES .... SOON WE SHALL BEGIN THROUGH THE PRESS TO 
PROPOSE COMPETITIONS IN ART, IN SPORT IN ALL KINDS: these interests will finally 
distract their minds from questions in which we should find ourselves compelled to 
oppose them. Growing more and more disaccustomed to reflect and form any opinions 
of their own, people will begin to talk in the same tone as we because we alone shall 
be offering them new directions for thought ... of course through such persons as will 
not be suspected of solidarity with us. 

4. The part played by the liberals, Utopian dreamers, will be finally played out when 
our government is acknowledged. Till such time they will continue to do us good 
service. Therefore we shall continue to direct their minds to all sorts of vain 
conceptions of fantastic theories, new and apparently progressive: for have we not 
with complete success turned the brainless heads of the GOYI M with progress, till 
there is not among the GOYIM one mind able to perceive that under this word lies a 
departure from truth in all cases where it is not a question of material inventions, like 
a fallacious idea, serves to obscure truth so that none may know it except us, the 
Chosen of God, its guardians. 

5. When, we come into our kingdom our orators will expound great problems which 
have turned humanity upside down in order to bring it at the end under our beneficent 
rule. 

6. Who will ever suspect then that ALL THESE PEOPLES WERE STAGE-MANAGED BY 
US ACCORDING TO A POLITICAL PLAN WHICH NO ONE HAS SO MUCH AS GUESSED 
AT IN THE COURSE OF MANY CENTURIES?

1. When we come into our kingdom it will be undesirable for us that there should 
exist any other religion than ours of the One God with whom our destiny is bound up 
by our position as the Chosen People and through whom our same destiny is united 
with the destinies of the world. We must therefore sweep away all other forms of

belief. If this gives birth to the atheists whom we see to-day, it will not, being only a 
transitional stage, interfere with our views, but will serve as a warning for those 
generations which will hearken to our preaching of the religion of Moses, that, by its 
stable and thoroughly elaborated system has brought all the peoples of the world into 
subjection to us. Therein we shall emphasize its mystical right, on which, as we shall 
say, all its educative power is based .... Then at every possible opportunity we shall 
publish articles in which we shall make comparisons between our beneficent rule and 
those of past ages. The blessing of tranquility, though it be a tranquility forcibly 
brought about by centuries of agitation, will throw into higher relief the benefits to 
which we shall point. The errors of the GOYI M governments will be depicted by us in 
the most vivid hues. We shall implant such an abhorrence of them that the peoples 
will prefer tranquility in a state of serfdom to those rights of vaunted freedom which 
have tortured humanity and exhausted the very sources of human existence, sources 
which have been exploited by a mob of rascally adventurers who know not what they 
do .... USELESS CHANGES OF FORMS OF GOVERNMENT TO WHICH WE INSTIGATED 
THE "GOYI M" WHEN WE WERE UNDERMINING THEIR STATE STRUCTURES, WILL HAVE 
SO WEARI ED THE PEOPLES BY THAT Tl ME THAT THEY Wl LL PREFER TO SUFFER 
ANYTHING UNDER US RATHER THAN RUN THE RISK OF ENDURING AGAIN ALL THE 
AGITATIONS AND MISERIES THEY HAVE GONE THROUGH. 

WE SHALL FORBI D CHRI ST 

2. At the same time we shall not omit to emphasize the historical mistakes of the 
GOY governments which have tormented humanity for so many centuries by their lack 
of understanding of everything that constitutes the true good of humanity in their 
chase after fantastic schemes of social blessings, and have never noticed that these 
schemes kept on producing a worse and never a better state of the universal relations 
which are the basis of human life .... 

3. The whole force of our principles and methods will lie in the fact that we shall 
present them and expound them as a splendid contrast to the dead and decomposed 
old order of things in social life. 

4. Our philosophers will discuss all the shortcomings of the various beliefs of the 
"GOYI M," BUT NO ONE WILL EVER BRING UNDER DISCUSSION OUR FAITH FROM ITS 
TRUE POINT OF VIEW SINCE THIS WILL BE FULLY LEARNED BY NONE SAVE OURS 
WHO Wl LL NEVER DARE TO BETRAY ITS SECRETS. 

5. IN COUNTRIES KNOWN AS PROGRESSIVE AND ENLIGHTENED WE HAVE 
CREATED A SENSELESS, Fl LTHY, ABOMI NABLE LITERATURE. For some time after our 
entrance to power we shall continue to encourage its existence in order to provide a 
telling relief by contrast to the speeches, party program, which will be distributed from 
exalted quarters of ours .... Our wise men, trained to become leaders of the GOYI M, 
will compose speeches, projects, memoirs, articles, which will be used by us to 
influence the minds of the GOYIM, directing them towards such understanding and 
forms of knowledge as have been determined by us.

1. When we at last definitely come into our kingdom by the aid of COUPS D'ETAT 
prepared everywhere for one and the same day, after definitely acknowledged (and 
not a little time will pass before that comes about, perhaps even a whole century) we 
shall make it our task to see that against us such things as plots shall no longer exist. 
With this purpose we shall slay without mercy all who take arms (in hand) to oppose 
our coming into our kingdom. Every kind of new institution of anything like a secret 
society will also be punished with death; those of them which are now in existence, 
are known to us, serve us and have served us, we shall disband and send into exile to 
continents far removed from Europe. IN THIS WAY WE SHALL PROCEED WITH THOSE 
"GOY" MASONS WHO KNOW TOO MUCH; such of these as we may for some reason 
spare will be kept in constant fear of exile. We shall promulgate a law making all 
former members of secret societies liable to exile from Europe as the center of rule. 

2. Resolutions of our government will be final, without appeal. 

3. In the GOY societies, in which we have planted and deeply rooted discord and 
protestantism, the only possible way of restoring order is to employ merciless 
measures that prove the direct force of authority: no regard must be paid to the 
victims who fall, they suffer for the well-being of the future. The attainment of that 
well-being, even at the expense of sacrifices, is the duty of any kind of government 
that acknowledges as justification for its existence not only its privileges but its 
obligations. The principal guarantee of stability of rule is to confirm the aureole of 
power, and this aureole is attained only by such a majestic inflexibility of might as 
shall carry on its face the emblems of inviolability from mystical causes - from the 
choice of God. SUCH WAS, UNTI L RECENT Tl MES, THE RUSSIAN AUTOCRACY, THE 
ONE AND ONLY SERIOUS FOE WE HAD IN THE WORLD, WITHOUT COUNTING THE 
PAPACY. Bear in mind the example when Italy, drenched with blood, never touched a 
hair of the head of Sulla who had poured forth that blood: Sulla enjoyed an apotheosis 
for his might in him, but his intrepid return to Italy ringed him round with inviolability. 
The people do not lay a finger on him who hypnotizes them by his daring and strength 
of mind. 

SECRET SOCI ETI ES 

4. Meantime, however, until we come into our kingdom, we shall act in the contrary 
way: we shall create and multiply free masonic lodges in all the countries of the world, 
absorb into them all who may become or who are prominent in public activity, for 
these lodges we shall find our principal intelligence office and means of influence. All 
these lodges we shall bring under one central administration, known to us alone and to 
all others absolutely unknown, which will be composed of our learned elders. The 
lodges will have their representatives who will serve to screen the above-mentioned 
administration of MASONRY and from whom will issue the watchword and program. In 
these lodges we shall tie together the knot which binds together all revolutionary and 
liberal elements. Their composition will be made up of all strata of society. The most 
secret political plots will be known to us and fall under our guiding hands on the very 
day of their conception. AMONG THE MEMBERS OF THESE LODGES Wl LL BE ALMOST 
ALL THE AGENTS OF INTERNATIONAL AND NATIONAL POLICE since their service is for 
us irreplaceable in the respect that the police is in a position not only to use its own 
particular measures with the insubordinate, but also to screen our activities and 
provide pretexts for discontents, ET CETERA. 

5. The class of people who most willingly enter into secret societies are those who 
live by their wits, careerists, and in general people, mostly light-minded, with whom 
we shall have no difficulty in dealing and in using to wind up the mechanism of the 



http://quotes.strongcity.com/protocols_of_zion.html 



3/31/01 



Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion 



Page 35 of 54 



machine devised by us. If this world grows agitated the meaning of that will be that 
we have had to stir up in order to break up its too great solidarity. BUT IF THERE 
SHOULD ARISE IN ITS MIDST A PLOT, THEN AT THE HEAD OF THAT PLOT WILL BE NO 
OTHER THAN ONE OF OUR MOST TRUSTED SERVANTS. It is natural that we and no 
other should lead MASONIC activities, for we know whither we are leading, we know 
the final goal of every form of activity whereas the GOYI M have knowledge of nothing, 
not even of the immediate effect of action; they put before themselves, usually, the 
momentary reckoning of the satisfaction of their self- opinion in the accomplishment of 
their thought without even remarking that the very conception never belonged to their 
initiative but to our instigation of their thought .... 

GENTI LES ARE STUPI D 

6. The GOYIM enter the lodges out of curiosity or in the hope by their means to get 
a nibble at the public pie, and some of them in order to obtain a hearing before the 
public for their impracticable and groundless fantasies: they thirst for the emotion of 
success and applause, of which we are remarkably generous. And the reason why we 
give them this success is to make use of the nigh conceit of themselves to which it 
gives birth, for that insensibly disposes them to assimilate our suggestions without 
being on their guard against them in the fullness of their confidence that it is their own 
infallibility which is giving utterance to their own thoughts and that it is impossible for 
them to borrow those of others .... You cannot imagine to what extent the wisest of 
the GOYIM can be brought to a state of unconscious naivete in the presence of this 
condition of high conceit of themselves, and at the same time how easy it is to take 
the heart out of them by the slightest ill-success, though it be nothing more than the 
stoppage of the applause they had, and to reduce them to a slavish submission for the 
sake of winning a renewal of success .... BY SO MUCH AS OURS DISREGARD SUCCESS 
I F ONLY THEY CAN CARRY THROUGH THEI R PLANS, BY SO MUCH THE "GOYI M" ARE 
WILLING TO SACRIFICE ANY PLANS ONLY TO HAVE SUCCESS. This psychology of 
theirs materially facilitates for us the task of setting them in the required direction. 
These tigers in appearance have the souls of sheep and the wind blows freely through 
their heads. We have set them on the hobby-horse of an idea about the absorption of 
individuality by the symbolic unit of COLLECTIVISM .... They have never yet and they 
never will have the sense to reflect that this hobby-horse is a manifest violation of the 
most important law of nature, which has established from the very creation of the 
world one unit unlike another and precisely for the purpose of instituting 
individuality .... 

7. If we have been able to bring them to such a pitch of stupid blindness is it not a 
proof, and an amazingly clear proof, of the degree to which the mind of the GOYIM is 
undeveloped in comparison with our mind? This it is, mainly, which guarantees our 
success. 

GENTI LES ARE CATTLE 

8. And how far-seeing were our learned elders in ancient times when they said that 
to attain a serious end it behooves not to stop at any means or to count the victims 
sacrificed for the sake of that end .... We have not counted the victims of the seed of 
the GOY cattle, though we have sacrificed many of our own, but for that we have now 
already given them such a position on the earth as they could not even have dreamed 
of. The comparatively small numbers of the victims from the number of ours have 
preserved our nationality from destruction. 

9. Death is the inevitable end for all. It is better to bring that end nearer to those 



http://quotes.strongcity.com/protocols_of_zion.html

who hinder our affairs than to ourselves, to the founders of this affair. WE EXECUTE 
MASONS I N SUCH WISE THAT NONE SAVE THE BROTHERHOOD CAN EVER HAVE A 
SUSPICION OF IT, NOT EVEN THE VICTIMS THEMSELVES OF OUR DEATH SENTENCE, 

THEY ALL Dl E WHEN REQUI RED AS I F FROM A NORMAL Kl ND OF I LLNESS 

Knowing this, even the brotherhood in its turn dare not protest. By such methods we 
have plucked out of the midst of MASONRY the very root of protest against our 
disposition. While preaching liberalism to the GOY we at the same time keep our own 
people and our agents in a state of unquestioningly submission. 

10. Under our influence the execution of the laws of the GOYI M has been reduced 
to a minimum. The prestige of the law has been exploded by the liberal interpretations 
introduced into this sphere. In the most important and fundamental affairs and 
questions, J UDGES DECI DE AS WE Dl CTATE TO THEM, see matters in the light 
wherewith we enfold them for the administration of the GOYI M, of course, through 
persons who are our tools though we do not appear to have anything in common with 
them - by newspaper opinion or by other means .... Even senators and the higher 
administration accept our counsels. The purely brute mind of the GOYI M is incapable 
of use for analysis and observation, and still more for the foreseeing whither a certain 
manner of setting a question may tend. 

11. I n this difference in capacity for thought between the GOYI M and ourselves may 
be clearly discerned the seal of our position as the Chosen People and of our higher 
quality of humanness, in contradistinction to the brute mind of the GOYI M. Their eyes 
are open, but see nothing before them and do not invent (unless perhaps, material 
things). From this it is plain that nature herself has destined us to guide and rule the 
world. 

WE DEMAND SUBMISSION 

12. When comes the time of our overt rule, the time to manifest its blessing, we 
shall remake all legislatures, all our laws will be brief, plain, stable, without any kind of 
interpretations, so that anyone will be in a position to know them perfectly. The main 
feature which will run right through them is submission to orders, and this principle 
will be carried to a grandiose height. Every abuse will then disappear in consequence 
of the responsibility of all down to the lowest unit before the higher authority of the 
representative of power. Abuses of power subordinate to this last instance will be so 
mercilessly punished that none will be found anxious to try experiments with their own 
powers. We shall follow up jealously every action of the administration on which 
depends the smooth running of the machinery of the State, for slackness in this 
produces slackness everywhere; not a single case of illegality or abuse of power will 
be left without exemplary punishment. 

13. Concealment of guilt, connivance between those in the service of the 
administration - all this kind of evil will disappear after the very first examples of 
severe punishment. The aureole of our power demands suitable, that is, cruel, 
punishments for the slightest infringement, for the sake of gain, of its supreme 
prestige. The sufferer, though his punishment may exceed his fault, will count as a 
soldier falling on the administrative field of battle in the interest of authority, principle 
and law, which do not permit that any of those who hold the reins of the public coach 
should turn aside from the public highway to their own private paths. FOR EXAMPLES 
OUR J UDGES WILL KNOW THAT WHENEVER THEY FEEL DISPOSED TO PLUME 
THEMSELVES ON FOOLI SH CLEMENCY THEY ARE VI OLATI NG THE LAW OF J USTI CE 
WHICH IS INSTITUTED FOR THE EXEMPLARY EDIFICATION OF MEN BY PENALTIES 
FOR LAPSES AND NOT FOR DISPLAY OF THE SPIRITUAL QUALITI ES OF THE

JUDGES .... Such qualities it is proper to show in private life, but not in a public square 
which is the educationally basis of human life. 

14. Our legal staff will serve not beyond the age of 55, firstly because old men 
more obstinately hold to prejudiced opinions, and are less capable of submitting to 
new directions, and secondly because this will give us the possibility by this measure 
of securing elasticity in the changing of staff, which will thus the more easily bend 
under our pressure: he who wishes to keep his place will have to give blind obedience 
to deserve it. In general, our judges will be elected by us only from among those who 
thoroughly understand that the part they have to play is to punish and apply laws and 
not to dream about the manifestations of liberalism at the expense of the educational 
scheme of the State, as the GOYIM in these days imagine it to be .... This method of 
shuffling the staff will serve also to explode any collective solidarity of those in the 
same service and will bind all to the interests of the government upon which their fate 
will depend. The young generation of judges will be trained in certain views regarding 
the inadmissibility of any abuses that might disturb the established order of our 
subjects among themselves. 

15. I n these days the judges of the GOYI M create indulgences to every kind of 
crimes, not having a just understanding of their office, because the rulers of the 
present age in appointing judges to office take no care to inculcate in them a sense of 
duty and consciousness of the matter which is demanded of them. As a brute beast 
lets out its young in search of prey, so do the GOYI M give to them for what purpose 
such place was created. This is the reason why their governments are being ruined by 
their own forces through the acts of their own administration. 

16. Let us borrow from the example of the results of these actions yet another 
lesson for our government. 

17. We shall root out liberalism from all the important strategic posts of our 
government on which depends the training of subordinates for our State structure. 
Such posts will fall exclusively to those who have been trained by us for administrative 
rule. To the possible objection that the retirement of old servants will cost the 
Treasury heavily, I reply, firstly, they will be provided with some private service in 
place of what they lose, and, secondly, I have to remark that all the money in the 
world will be concentrated in our hands, consequently it is not our government that 
has to fear expense. 

WE SHALL BE CRUEL 

18. Our absolutism will in all things be logically consecutive and therefore in each 
one of its decrees our supreme will be respected and unquestionably fulfilled: it will 
ignore all murmurs, all discontents of every kind and will destroy to the root every 
kind of manifestation of them in act by punishment of an exemplary character. 

19. We shall abolish the right of cessation, which will be transferred exclusively to 
our disposal - to the cognizance of him who rules, for we must not allow the 
conception among the people of a thought that there could be such a thing as a 
decision that is not right of judges set up by us. If, however, anything like this should 
occur, we shall ourselves cassate the decision, but inflict therewith such exemplary 
punishment on the judge for lack of understanding of his duty and the purpose of his 
appointment as will prevent a repetition of such cases .... I repeat that it must be born 
in mind that we shall know every step of our administration which only needs to be

closely watched for the people to be content with us, for it has the right to demand 
from a good government a good official. 

20. OUR GOVERNMENT WILL HAVE THE APPEARANCE OF A PATRIARCHAL 
PATERNAL GUARDIANSHIP ON THE PART OF OUR RULER. Our own nation and our 
subjects will discern in his person a father caring for their every need, their every act, 
their every inter-relation as subjects one with another, as well as their relations to the 
ruler. They will then be so thoroughly imbued with the thought that it is impossible for 
them to dispense with this wardship and guidance, if they wish to live in peace and 
quiet, THAT THEY Wl LL ACKNOWLEDGE THE AUTOCRACY OF OUR RULER WITH A 
DEVOTION BORDERING ON "APOTHEOSIS," especially when they are convinced that 
those whom we set up do not put their own in place of authority, but only blindly 
execute his dictates. They will be rejoiced that we have regulated everything in their 
lives as is done by wise parents who desire to train children in the cause of duty and 
submission. For the peoples of the world in regard to the secrets of our polity are ever 
through the ages only children under age, precisely as are also their governments. 

21. As you see, I found our despotism on right and duty: the right to compel the 
execution of duty is the direct obligation of a government which is a father for its 
subjects. It has the right of the strong that it may use it for the benefit of directing 
humanity towards that order which is defined by nature, namely, submission. 
Everything in the world is in a state of submission, if not to man, then to 
circumstances or its own inner character, in all cases, to what is stronger. And so shall 
we be this something stronger for the sake of good. 

22. We are obliged without hesitation to sacrifice individuals, who commit a breach 
of established order, for in the exemplary punishment of evil lies a great educational 
problem. 

23. When the King of Israel sets upon his sacred head the crown offered him by 
Europe he will become patriarch of the world. The indispensable victims offered by him 
in consequence of their suitability will never reach the number of victims offered in the 
course of centuries by the mania of magnificence, the emulation between the GOY 
governments. 

24. Our King will be in constant communion with the peoples, making to them from 
the tribune speeches which fame will in that same hour distribute over all the world.

PROTOCOL No. 16 

1. In order to effect the destruction of all collective forces except ours we shall 
emasculate the first stage of collectivism - the UNIVERSITIES, by reeducating them in 
a new direction. THEIR OFFICIALS AND PROFESSORS WILL BE PREPARED FOR THEIR 
BUSI NESS BY DETAI LED SECRET PROGRAMS OF ACTI ON FROM WHI CH THEY Wl LL 
NOT WITH IMMUNITY DIVERGE, NOT BY ONE IOTA. THEY WILL BE APPOINTED WITH 
ESPECIAL PRECAUTION, AND WILL BE SO PLACED AS TO BE WHOLLY DEPENDENT 
UPON THE GOVERNMENT.

2. We shall exclude from the course of instruction State Law as also all that 
concerns the political question. These subjects will be taught to a few dozen of persons 
chosen for their preeminent capacities from among the number of the initiated. THE 
UNIVERSITIES MUST NO LONGER SEND OUT FROM THEIR HALLS MILK SOPS 
CONCOCTING PLANS FOR A CONSTITUTION, LIKE A COMEDY OR A TRAGEDY, 
BUSYING THEMSELVES WITH QUESTIONS OF POLICY IN WHICH EVEN THEIR OWN 
FATHERS NEVER HAD ANY POWER OF THOUGHT. 

3. The ill-guided acquaintance of a large number of persons with questions of polity 
creates Utopian dreamers and bad subjects, as you can see for yourselves from the 
example of the universal education in this direction of the GOYI M. We must introduce 
into their education all those principles which have so brilliantly broken up their order. 
But when we are in power we shall remove every kind of disturbing subject from the 
course of education and shall make out of the youth obedient children of authority, 
loving him who rules as the support and hope of peace and quiet. 

WE SHALL CHANGE HI STORY 

4. Classicism as also any form of study of ancient history, in which there are more 
bad than good examples, we shall replace with the study of the program of the future. 
We shall erase from the memory of men all facts of previous centuries which are 
undesirable to us, and leave only those which depict all the errors of the government 
of the GOYI M. The study of practical life, of the obligations of order, of the relations of 
people one to another, of avoiding bad and selfish examples, which spread the 
infection of evil, and similar questions of an educative nature, will stand in the 
forefront of the teaching program, which will be drawn up on a separate plan for each 
calling or state of life, in no wise generalizing the teaching. This treatment of the 
question has special importance. 

5. Each state of life must be trained within strict limits corresponding to its 
destination and work in life. The OCCASIONAL GENIUS HAS ALWAYS MANAGED AND 
ALWAYS WILL MANAGE TO SLIP THROUGH INTO OTHER STATES OF LIFE, BUT IT IS 
THE MOST PERFECT FOLLY FOR THE SAKE OF THIS RARE OCCASIONAL GENIUS TO 
LET THROUGH INTO RANKS FOREIGN TO THEM THE UNTALENTED WHO THUS ROB OF 
THEIR PLACES WHO BELONG TO THOSE RANKS BY BIRTH OR EMPLOYMENT. YOU 
KNOW YOURSELVES I N WHAT ALL THI S HAS ENDED FOR THE "GOYI M" WHO 
ALLOWED THIS CRYING ABSURDITY. 

6. In order that he who rules may be seated firmly in the hearts and minds of his 
subjects it is necessary for the time of his activity to instruct the whole nation in the 
schools and on the market places about this meaning and his acts and all his 
beneficent initiatives. 

7. We shall abolish every kind of freedom of instruction. Learners of all ages have 
the right to assemble together with their parents in the educational establishments as 
it were in a club: during these assemblies, on holidays, teachers will read what will 
pass as free lectures on questions of human relations, of the laws of examples, of the 
philosophy of new theories not yet declared to the world. These theories will be raised 
by us to the stage of a dogma of faith as a traditional stage towards our faith. On the 
completion of this exposition of our program of action in the present and the future I 
will read you the principles of these theories. 

8. In a word, knowing by the experience of many centuries that people live and are

guided by ideas, that these ideas are imbibed by people only by the aid of education 
provided with equal success for all ages of growth, but of course by varying methods, 
we shall swallow up and confiscate to our own use the last scintilla of independence of 
thought, which we have for long past been directing towards subjects and ideas useful 
for us. The system of bridling thought is already at work in the so-called system of 
teaching by OBJECT LESSONS, the purpose of which is to turn the GOYIM into 
unthinking submissive brutes waiting for things to be presented before their eyes in 
order to form an idea of them .... In France, one of our best agents, Bourgeois, has 
already made public a new program of teaching by object lessons.

PROTOCOL No. 17 

1. The practice of advocacy produces men cold, cruel, persistent, unprincipled, who 
in all cases take up an impersonal, purely legal standpoint. They have the inveterate 
habit to refer everything to its value for the defense and not to the public welfare of its 
results. They do not usually decline to undertake any defense whatever, they strive for 
an acquittal at all costs, caviling over every petty crux of jurisprudence and thereby 
they demoralize justice. For this reason we shall set this profession into narrow frames 
which will keep it inside this sphere of executive public service. Advocates, equally 
with judges, will be deprived of the right of communication with litigant; they well 
receive business only from the court and will study it by notes of report and 
documents, defending their clients after they have been interrogated in court on facts 
that have appeared. They will receive an honorarium without regard to the quality of 
the defense. This will render them mere reporters on law- business in the interests of 
justice and as counterpoise to the proctor who will be the reporter in the interests of 
prosecution; this will shorten business before the courts. In this way will be 
established a practice of honest unprejudiced defense conducted not from personal 
interest but by conviction. This will also, by the way, remove the present practice of 
corrupt bargain between advocation to agree only to let that side win which pays 
most 

WE SHALL DESTROY THE CLERGY 

2. WE HAVE LONG PAST TAKEN CARE TO DISCREDIT THE PRIESTHOOD OF 
"GOYIIVI," and thereby to ruin their mission on earth which in these days might still be 
a great hindrance to us. Day by day its influence on the peoples of the world is falling 
lower. FREEDOM OF CONSCIENCE HAS BEEN DECLARED EVERYWHERE, SO THAT NOW 
ONLY YEARS DIVIDE US FROM THE MOMENT OF THE COMPLETE WRECKING OF THAT 
CHRISTIAN RELIGION: as to other religions we shall have still less difficulty in dealing 
with them, but it would be premature to speak of this now. We shall act clericalism 
and clericals into such narrow frames as to make their influence move in retrogressive 
proportion to its former progress. 

3. When the time comes finally to destroy the papal court the finger of an invisible 
hand will point the nations towards this court. When, however, the nations fling 
themselves upon it, we shall come forward in the guise of its defenders as if to save 
excessive bloodshed. By this diversion we shall penetrate to its very bowels and be 
sure we shall never come out again until we have gnawed through the entire strength 
of this place.

4. THE KING OF THE J EWS WILL BE THE REAL POPE OF THE UNIVERSE, THE 
PATRIARCH OF THE INTERNATIONAL CHURCH [The Antichrist??]. 

5. But, IN THE MEANTIME, while we are reeducating youth in new traditional 
religions and afterwards in ours, WE SHALL NOT OVERTLY LAY A Fl NGER ON EXI STI NG 
CHURCHES, BUT WE SHALL FIGHT AGAINST THEM BY CRITICISM CALCULATED TO 
PRODUCE SCHISM .... 

6. In general, then, our contemporary press will continue to CONVICT State affairs, 
religions, incapacities of the GOYIM, always using the most unprincipled expressions in 
order by every means to lower their prestige in the manner which can only be 
practiced by the genius of our gifted tribe .... 

7. Our kingdom will be an apologia of the divinity Vishnu, in whom is found its 
personification - in our hundred hands will be, one in each, the springs of the 
machinery of social life. We shall see everything without the aid of official police which, 
in that scope of its rights which we elaborated for the use of the GOYIM, hinders 
governments from seeing. I n our programs ONE-THI RD OF OUR SUBJ ECTS Wl LL KEEP 
THE REST UNDER OBSERVATION from a sense of duty, on the principle of volunteer 
service to the State. It will then be no disgrace to be a spy and informer, but a merit: 
unfounded denunciations, however, will be cruelly punished that there may be 
development of abuses of this right. 

8. Our agents will be taken from the higher as well as the lower ranks of society, 
from among the administrative class who spend their time in amusements, editors, 
printers and publishers, booksellers, clerks, and salesmen, workmen, coachmen, 
lackeys, et cetera. This body, having no rights and not being empowered to take any 
action on their own account, and consequently a police without any power, will only 
witness and report: verification of their reports and arrests will depend upon a 
responsible group of controllers of police affairs, while the actual act of arrest will be 
performed by the gendarmerie and the municipal police. Any person not denouncing 
anything seen or heard concerning questions of polity will also be charged with and 
made responsible for concealment, if it be proved that he is guilty of this crime. 

9. JUST AS NOWADAYS OUR BRETHREN, ARE OBLIGED AT THEIR OWN RISK TO 
DENOUNCE TO THE KABAL APOSTATES OF THEI R OWN FAMI LY or members who have 
been noticed doing anything in opposition to the KABAL, SO IN OUR KINGDOM OVER 
ALL THE WORLD IT WILL BE OBLIGATORY FOR ALL OUR SUBJECTS TO OBSERVE THE 
DUTY OF SERVI CE TO THE STATE I N THI S Dl RECTI ON. 10. Such an organization will 
extirpate abuses of authority, of force, of bribery, everything in fact which we by our 
counsels, by out theories of the superhuman rights of man, have introduced into the 
customs of the GOYIM .... But how else were we to procure that increase of causes 
predisposing to disorders in the midst of their administration? .... Among the number 
of those methods one of the most important is - agents for the restoration of order, so 
placed as to have the opportunity in their disintegrating activity of developing and 
displaying their evil inclinations - obstinate self-conceit, irresponsible exercise of 
authority, and, first and foremost, venality.

PROTOCOL No. 18 

1. When it becomes necessary for us to strengthen the strict measures of secret 
defense (the most fatal poison for the prestige of authority) we shall arrange a 
simulation of disorders or some manifestation of discontents finding expression 
through the co- operation of good speakers. Round these speakers will assemble all 
who are sympathetic to his utterances. This will give us the pretext for domiciliary 
prerequisitions and surveillance on the part of our servants from among the number of 
the GOYIM police .... 

2. As the majority of conspirators act of love for the game, for the sake of talking, 
so, until they commit some overt act we shall not lay a finger on them but only 
introduce into their midst observation elements .... It must be remembered that the 
prestige of authority is lessened if it frequently discovers conspiracies against itself: 
this implies a presumption of consciousness of weakness, or, what is still worse, of 
injustice. You are aware that we have broken the prestige of the GOY kings by 
frequent attempts upon their lives through our agents, blind sheep of our flock, who 
are easily moved by a few liberal phrases to crimes provided only they be painted in 
political colors. WE HAVE COMPELLED THE RULERS TO ACKNOWLEDGE THEIR 
WEAKNESS IN ADVERTISING OVERT MEASURES OF SECRETE DEFENSE AND THEREBY 
WE SHALL BRING THE PROMISE OF AUTHORITY TO DESTRUCTION. 

3. Our ruler will be secretly protected only by the most insignificant guard, because 
we shall not admit so much as a thought that there could exist against him any 
sedition with which he is not strong enough to contend and is compelled to hide from 
it. 

4. If we should admit this thought, as the GOYI M have done and are doing, we 
should IPSO FACTO be signing a death sentence, if not for our ruler, at any rate for his 
dynasty, at no distant date. 

GOVERNMENT BY FEAR 

5. According to strictly enforced outward appearances our ruler will employ his 
power only for the advantage of the nation and in no wise for his own or dynastic 
profits. Therefore, with the observance of this decorum, his authority will be respected 
and guarded by the subjects themselves, it will receive an apotheosis in the admission 
that with it is bound up the well-being of every citizen of the State, for upon it will 
depend all order in the common life of the pack .... 

6. OVERT DEFENSE OF THE Kl ND ARGUES WEAKNESS I N THE ORGANI ZATI ON OF 
HIS STRENGTH. 

7. Our ruler will always be among the people and be surrounded by a mob of 
apparently curious men and women, who will occupy the front ranks about him, to all 
appearance by chance, and will restrain the ranks of the rest out of respect as it will 
appear for good order. This will sow an example of restraint also in others. If a 
petitioner appears among the people trying to hand a petition and forcing his way 
through the ranks, the first ranks must receive the petition and before the eyes of the 
petitioner pass it to the ruler, so that all may know that what is handed in reaches its 
destination, that consequently, there exists a control of the ruler himself. The aureole 
of power requires for is existence that the people may be able to say: "If the king 
knew of this," or: "the king will hear it."

8. WITH THE ESTABLISHMENT OF OFFICIAL DEFENSE, THE MYSTICAL PRESTIGE OF 
AUTHORITY DISAPPEARS: given a certain audacity, and everyone counts himself 
master of it, the sedition- monger is conscious of his strength, and when occasion 
serves watches for the moment to make an attempt upon authority .... For the GOYI M 
we have been preaching something else, but by that very fact we are enabled to see 
what measures of overt defense have brought them to .... 

9. CRI Ml NALS WITH US Wl LL BE ARRESTED AT THE Fl RST, more or less, well- 
grounded SUSPICION: it cannot be allowed that out of fear of a possible mistake an 
opportunity should be given of escape to persons suspected of a political lapse of 
crime, for in these matters we shall be literally merciless. If it is still possible, by 
stretching a point, to admit a reconsideration of the motive causes in simple crimes, 
there is no possibility of excuse for persons occupying themselves with questions in 
which nobody except the government can understand anything .... And it is not all 
governments that understand true policy.

PROTOCOL No. 19 

1. If we do not permit any independent dabbling in the political we shall on the 
other hand encourage every kind of report or petition with proposals for the 
government to examine into all kinds of projects for the amelioration of the condition 
of the people; this will reveal to us the defects or else the fantasies of our subjects, to 
which we shall respond either by accomplishing them or by a wise rebuttment to prove 
the shortsightedness of one who judges wrongly. 

2. Sedition-mongering is nothing more than the yapping of a lap- dog at an 
elephant. For a government well organized, not from the police but from the public 
point of view, the lap-dog yaps at the elephant in entire unconsciousness of its 
strength and importance. It needs no more than to take a good example to show the 
relative importance of both and the lap-dogs will cease to yap and will wag their tails 
the moment they set eyes on an elephant. 

3. In order to destroy the prestige of heroism for political crime we shall send it for 
trial in the category of thieving, murder, and every kind of abominable and filthy 
crime. Public opinion will then confuse in its conception of this category of crime with 
the disgrace attaching to every other and will brand it with the same contempt. 

4. We have done our best, and I hope we have succeeded to obtain that the GOYI M 
should not arrive at this means of contending with sedition. It was for this reason that 
through the Press and in speeches, indirectly - in cleverly compiled school- books on 
history, we have advertised the martyrdom alleged to have been accredited by 
sedition-mongers for the idea of the commonweal. This advertisement has increased 
the contingent of liberals and has brought thousands of GOYIM into the ranks of our 
livestock cattle.

PROTOCOL No. 20 

1. To-day we shall touch upon the financial program, which I put off to the end of 
my report as being the most difficult, the crowning and the decisive point of our plans. 
Before entering upon it I will remind you that 1 have already spoken before by way of 
a hint when I said that the sum total of our actions is settled by the question of 
figures. 

2. When we come into our kingdom our autocratic government will avoid, from a 
principle of self-preservation, sensibly burdening the masses of the people with taxes, 
remembering that it plays the part of father and protector. But as State organization 
cost dear it is necessary nevertheless to obtain the funds required for it. It will, 
therefore, elaborate with particular precaution the question of equilibrium in this 
matter. 

3. Our rule, in which the king will enjoy the legal fiction that everything in his State 
belongs to him (which may easily be translated into fact), will be enabled to resort to 
the lawful confiscation of all sums of every kind for the regulation of their circulation in 
the State. From this follows that taxation will best be covered by a progressive tax on 
property. In this manner the dues will be paid without straitening or ruining anybody 
in the form of a percentage of the amount of property. The rich must be aware that it 
is their duty to place a part of their superfluities at the disposal of the State since the 
State guarantees them security of possession of the rest of their property and the 
right of honest gains, I say honest, for the control over property will do away with 
robbery on a legal basis. 

4. This social reform must come from above, for the time is ripe for it - it is 
indispensable as a pledge of peace. 

WE SHALL DESTROY CAPITAL 

5. The tax upon the poor man is a seed of revolution and works to the detriment of 
the State which is hunting after the trifling is missing the big. Quite apart from this, a 
tax on capitalists diminishes the growth of wealth in private hands in which we have in 
these days concentrated it as a counterpoise to the government strength of the GOYI M 
- their State finances. 

6. A tax increasing in a percentage ratio to capital will give much larger revenue 
than the present individual or property tax, which is useful to us now for the sole 
reason that it excites trouble and discontent among the GOYIM. 

7. The force upon which our king will rest consists in the equilibrium and the 
guarantee of peace, for the sake of which things it is indispensable that the capitalists 
should yield up a portion of their incomes for the sake of the secure working of the 
machinery of the State. State needs must be paid by those who will not feel the 
burden and have enough to take from. 

8. Such a measure will destroy the hatred of the poor man for the rich, in whom he 
will see a necessary financial support for the State, will see in him the organizer of 
peace and well-being since he will see that it is the rich man who is paying the 
necessary means to attain these things.

9. In order that payers of the educated classes should not too much distress 
themselves over the new payments they will have full accounts given them of the 
destination of those payments, with the exception of such sums as will be 
appropriated for the needs of the throne and the administrative institutions. 

10. He who reigns will not have any properties of his own once all in the State 
represented his patrimony, or else the one would be in contradiction to the other; the 
fact of holding private means would destroy the right of property in the common 
possessions of all. 

11. Relatives of him who reigns, his heirs excepted, who will be maintained by the 
resources of the State, must enter the ranks of servants of the State or must work to 
obtain the right to property; the privilege of royal blood must not serve for the spoiling 
of the treasury. 

12. Purchase, receipt of money or inheritance will be subject to the payment of a 
stamp progressive tax. Any transfer of property, whether money or other, without 
evidence of payment of this tax which will be strictly registered by names, will render 
the former holder liable to pay interest on the tax from the moment of transfer of 
these sums up to the discovery of his evasion of declaration of the transfer. Transfer 
documents must be presented weekly at the local treasury office with notifications of 
the name, surname and permanent place of residence of the former and the new 
holder of the property. This transfer with register of names must begin from a definite 
sum which exceeds the ordinary expenses of buying and selling necessaries, and these 
will be subject to payment only by a stamp impost of a definite percentage of the unit. 

13. J ust strike an estimate of how many times such taxes as these will cover the 
revenue of the GOYI M States. 

WE CAUSE DEPRESSIONS 

14. The State exchequer will have to maintain a definite complement of reserve 
sums, and all that is collected above that complement must be returned into 
circulation. On these sums will be organized public works. The initiative in works of 
this kind, proceeding from State sources, will blind the working class firmly to the 
interests of the State and to those who reign. From these same sums also a part will 
be set aside as rewards of inventiveness and productiveness. 

15. On no account should so much as a single unit above the definite and freely 
estimated sums be retained in the State Treasuries, for money exists to be circulated 
and any kind of stagnation of money acts ruinously on the running of the State 
machinery, for which it is the lubricant; a stagnation of the lubricant may stop the 
regular working of the mechanism. 

16. The substitution of interest- bearing paper for a part of the token of exchange 
has produced exactly this stagnation. The consequences of this circumstance are 
already sufficiently noticeable. 

17. A court of account will also be instituted by us, and in it the ruler will find at any 
moment a full accounting for State income and expenditure, with the exception of the 
current monthly account, not yet made up, and that of the preceding month, which 
will not yet have been delivered.

18. The one and only person who will have no interest in robbing the State is its 
owner, the ruler. This is why his personal control will remove the possibility of 
leakages of extravagances. 

19. The representative function of the ruler at receptions for the sake of etiquette, 
which absorbs so much invaluable time, will be abolished in order that the ruler may 
have time for control and consideration. His power will not then be split up into 
fractional parts among time-serving favorites who surround the throne for its pomp 
and splendor, and are interested only in their own and not in the common interests of 
the State. 

20. Economic crises have been producer by us for the GOYI M by no other means 
than the withdrawal of money from circulation. Huge capitals have stagnated, 
withdrawing money from States, which were constantly obliged to apply to those same 
stagnant capitals for loans. These loans burdened the finances of the State with the 
payment of interest and made them the bond slaves of these capitals .... The 
concentration of industry in the hands of capitalists out of the hands of small masters 
has drained away all the juices of the peoples and with them also the States .... 

21. The present issue of money in general does not correspond with the 
requirements per head, and cannot therefore satisfy all the needs of the workers. The 
issue of money ought to correspond with the growth of population and thereby 
children also must absolutely be reckoned as consumers of currency from the day of 
their birth. The revision of issue is a material question for the whole world. 

22. YOU ARE AWARE THAT THE GOLD STANDARD HAS BEEN THE RUI N OF THE 
STATES WHICH ADOPTED IT, FOR IT HAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO SATISFY THE DEMANDS 
FOR MONEY, THE MORE SO THAT WE HAVE REMOVED GOLD FROM CIRCULATION AS 
FAR AS POSSIBLE. 

GENTILE STATES BANKRUPT 

23. With us the standard that must be introduced is the cost of working-man 
power, whether it be reckoned in paper or in wood. We shall make the issue of money 
in accordance with the normal requirements of each subject, adding to the quantity 
with every birth and subtracting with every death. 

24. The accounts will be managed by each department (the French administrative 
division), each circle. 

25. In order that there may be no delays in the paying our of money for State 
needs the sums and terms of such payments will be fixed by decree of the ruler; this 
will do away with the protection by a ministry of one institution to the detriment of 
others. 

26. The budgets of income and expenditure will be carried out side by side that 
they may not be obscured by distance one to another. 

27. The reforms projected by us in the financial institutions and principles of the 
GOYIM will be clothed by us in such forms as will alarm nobody. We shall point out the 
necessity of reforms in consequence of the disorderly darkness into which the GOYI M 
by their irregularities have plunged the finances. The first irregularity, as we shall 



http://quotes.strongcity.com/protocols_of_zion.html 



3/31/01 



Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion 



Page 47 of 54 



point out, consists in their beginning with drawing up a single budget which year after 
year grows owing to the following cause: this budget is dragged out to half the year, 
then they demand a budget to put things right, and this they expend in three months, 
after which they ask for a supplementary budget, and all this ends with a liquidation 
budget. But, as the budget of the following year is drawn up in accordance with the 
sum of the total addition, the annual departure from the normal reaches as much as 
50 per cent in a year, and so the annual budget is trebled in ten years. Thanks to such 
methods, allowed by the carelessness of the GOY States, their treasuries are empty. 
The period of loans supervenes, and that has swallowed up remainders and brought all 
the GOY States to bankruptcy. 

28. You understand perfectly that economic arrangements of this kind, which have 
been suggested to the GOYIM by us, cannot be carried on by us. 

29. Every kind of loan proves infirmity in the State and a want of understanding of 
the rights of the State. Loans hang like a sword of Damocles over the heads of rulers, 
who, instead of taking from their subjects by a temporary tax, come begging with 
outstretched palm of our bankers. Foreign loans are leeches which there is no 
possibility of removing from the body of the State until they fall off of themselves or 
the State flings them off. But the GOY States do not tear them off; they go on in 
persisting in putting more on to themselves so that they must inevitably perish, 
drained by voluntary blood-letting. 

TYRANNY OF USURY 

30. What also indeed is, in substance, a loan, especially a foreign loan? A loan is - 
an issue of government bills of exchange containing a percentage obligation 
commensurate to the sum of the loan capital. If the loan bears a charge of 5 per cent, 
then in twenty years the State vainly pays away in interest a sum equal to the loan 
borrowed, in forty years it is paying a double sum, in sixty - treble, and all the while 
the debt remains an unpaid debt. 

31. From this calculation it is obvious that with any form of taxation per head the 
State is baling out the last coppers of the poor taxpayers in order to settle accounts 
with wealth foreigners, from whom it has borrowed money instead of collecting these 
coppers for its own needs without the additional interest. 

32. So long as loans were internal the GOYIM only shuffled their money from the 
pockets of the poor to those of the rich, but when we bought up the necessary person 
in order to transfer loans into the external sphere, all the wealth of States flowed into 
our cash- boxes and all the GOYIM began to pay us the tribute of subjects. 

33. If the superficiality of GOY kings on their thrones in regard to State affairs and 
the venality of ministers or the want of understanding of financial matters on the part 
of other ruling persons have made their countries debtors to our treasuries to amounts 
quite impossible to pay it has not been accomplished without, on our part, heavy 
expenditure of trouble and money. 

34. Stagnation of money will not be allowed by us and therefore there will be no 
State interest- bearing paper, except a one per- cent series, so that there will be no 
payment of interest to leeches that suck all the strength out of the State. The right to 
issue interest-bearing paper will be given exclusively to industrial companies who will 
find no difficulty in paying interest out of profits, whereas the State does not make 



http://quotes.strongcity.com/protocols_of_zion.html 



3/31/01 



Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion 



Page 48 of 54 



interest on borrowed money like these companies, for the State borrows to spend and 
not to use in operations. 

35. Industrial papers will be bought also by the government which from being as 
now a paper of tribute by loan operations will be transformed into a lender of money 
at a profit. This measure will stop the stagnation of money, parasitic profits and 
idleness, all of which were useful for us among the GOYIM so long as they were 
independent but are not desirable under our rule. 

36. How clear is the undeveloped power of thought of the purely brute brains of the 
GOYIM, as expressed in the fact that they have been borrowing from us with payment 
of interest without ever thinking that all the same these very moneys plus an addition 
for payment of interest must be got by them from their own State pockets in order to 
settle up with us. What could have been simpler than to take the money they wanted 
from their own people? 

37. But it is a proof of the genius of our chosen mind that we have contrived to 
present the matter of loans to them in such a light that they have even seen in them 
an advantage for themselves. 

38. Our accounts, which we shall present when the time comes, in the light of 
centuries of experience gained by experiments made by us on the GOY States, will be 
distinguished by clearness and definiteness and will show at a glance to all men the 
advantage of our innovations. They will put an end to those abuses to which we owe 
our mastery over the GOYIM, but which cannot be allowed in our kingdom. 

39. We shall so hedge about our system of accounting that neither the ruler nor the 
most insignificant public servant will be in a position to divert even the smallest sum 
from its destination without detection or to direct it in another direction except that 
which will be once fixed in a definite plan of action. 

40. And without a definite plan it is impossible to rule. Marching along an 
undetermined road and with undetermined resources brings to ruin by the way heroes 
and demigods. 

41. The GOY rulers, whom we once upon a time advised should be distracted from 
State occupations by representative receptions, observances of etiquette, 
entertainments, were only screens for our rule. The accounts of favorite courtiers who 
replaced them in the sphere of affairs were drawn up for them by our agents, and 
every time gave satisfaction to short-sighted minds by promises that in the future 
economics and improvements were foreseen .... Economics from what? From new 
taxes? - were questions that might have been but were not asked by those who read 
our accounts and projects. 

42. You know to what they have been brought by this carelessness, to what pitch of 
financial disorder they have arrived, notwithstanding the astonishing industry of their 
peoples.

Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion 



Page 49 of 54 



PROTOCOL No. 21 

1. To what I reported to you at the last meeting I shall now add a detailed 
explanation of internal loans. Of foreign loans I shall say nothing more, because they 
have fed us with national moneys of the GOYIM, but for our State there will be no 
foreigners, that is, nothing external. 

2. We have taken advantage of the venality of administrators and slackness of 
rulers to get our moneys twice, thrice and more times over, by lending to the GOY 
governments moneys which were not at all needed by the States. Could anyone do the 
like in regard to us? .... Therefore, I shall only deal with the details of internal loans. 

3. States announce that such a loan is to be concluded and open subscriptions for 
their own bills of exchange, that is, for their interest-bearing paper. That they may be 
within the reach of all the price is determined at from a hundred to a thousand; and a 
discount is made for the earliest subscribers. Next day by artificial means the price of 
them goes up, the alleged reason being that everyone is rushing to buy them. In a few 
days the treasury safes are as they say overflowing and there's more money than they 
can do with. The subscription, it is alleged, covers many times over the issue total of 
the loan; in this lies the whole stage effect - look you, they say, what confidence is 
shown in the government's bills of exchange. 

4. But when the comedy is played out there emerges the fact that a debit and an 
exceedingly burdensome debit has been created. For the payment of interest it 
becomes necessary to have recourse to new loans, which do not swallow up but only 
add to the capital debt. And when this credit is exhausted it becomes necessary by 
new taxes to cover, not the loan, BUT ONLY THE I NTEREST ON IT. These taxes are a 
debit employed to cover a debit .... 

5. Later comes the time for conversions, but they diminish the payment of interest 
without covering the debt, and besides they cannot be made without the consent of 
the lenders; on announcing a conversion a proposal is made to return the money to 
those who are not willing to convert their paper. If everybody expressed his 
unwillingness and demanded his money back, the government would be hooked on 
their own files and would be found insolvent and unable to pay the proposed sums. By 
good luck the subjects of the GOY governments, knowing nothing about financial 
affairs, have always preferred losses on exchange and diminution of interest to the 
risk of new investments of their moneys, and have thereby many a time enabled these 
governments to throw off their shoulders a debit of several millions. 

6. Nowadays, with external loans, these tricks cannot be played by the GOYIM for 
they know that we shall demand all our moneys back. 

7. In this way in acknowledged bankruptcy will best prove to the various countries 
the absence of any means between the interest of the peoples and of those who rule 
them. 

8. I beg you to concentrate your particular attention upon this point and upon the 
following: nowadays all internal loans are consolidated by so-called flying loans, that 
is, such as have terms of payment more or less near. These debts consist of moneys 
paid into the savings banks and reserve funds. If left for long at the disposition of a 
government these funds evaporate in the payment of interest on foreign loans, and 
are placed by the deposit of equivalent amount of RENTS.

9. And these last it is which patch up all the leaks in the State treasuries of the 
GOY1M. 

10. When we ascend the throne of the world all these financial and similar shifts, as 
being not in accord with our interests, will be swept away so as not to leave a trace, 
as also will be destroyed all money markets, since we shall not allow the prestige of 
our power to be shaken by fluctuations of prices set upon our values, which we shall 
announce by law at the price which represents their full worth without any possibility 
of lowering or raising. (Raising gives the pretext for lowering, which indeed was where 
we made a beginning in relation to the values of the GOYI M.) 

11. We shall replace the money markets by grandiose government credit 
institutions, the object of which will be to fix the price of industrial values in 
accordance with government views. These institutions will be in a position to fling 
upon the market five hundred millions of industrial paper in one day, or to buy up for 
the same amount. In this way all industrial undertakings will come into dependence 
upon us. You may imagine for yourselves what immense power we shall thereby 
secure for ourselves.

PROTOCOL No. 22 

1. In all that has so far been reported by me to you, I have endeavored to depict 
with care the secret of what is coming, of what is past, and of what is going on now, 
rushing into the flood of the great events coming already in the near future, the secret 
of our relations to the GOYIM and of financial operations. On this subject there 
remains still a little for me to add. 

2. IN OUR HANDS IS THE GREATEST POWER OF OUR DAY - GOLD: IN TWO DAYS 
WE CAN PROCURE FROM OUR STOREHOUSES ANY QUANTITY WE MAY PLEASE. 

3. Surely there is no need to seek further proof that our rule is predestined by God? 
Surely we shall not fail with such wealth to prove that all that evil which for so many 
centuries we have had to commit has served at the end of ends the cause of true well- 
being - the bringing of everything into order? Though it be even by the exercise of 
some violence, yet all the same it will be established. We shall contrive to prove that 
we are benefactors who have restored to the rent and mangled earth the true good 
and also freedom of the person, and therewith we shall enable it to be enjoyed in 
peace and quiet, with proper dignity of relations, on the condition, of course, of strict 
observance of the laws established by us. We shall make plain therewith that freedom 
does not consist in dissipation and in the right of unbridled license any more than the 
dignity and force of a man do not consist in the right of everyone to promulgate 
destructive principles in the nature of freedom of conscience, equality and a like, that 
freedom of the person in no wise consists in the right to agitate oneself and others by 
abominable speeches before disorderly mobs, and that true freedom consists in the 
inviolability of the person who honorably and strictly observes all the laws of life in 
common, that human dignity is wrapped up in consciousness of the rights and also of 
the absence of rights of each, and not wholly and solely in fantastic imaginings about 
the subject of one's EGO.

4. One authority will be glorious because it will be all-powerful, will rule and guide, 
and not muddle along after leaders and orators shrieking themselves hoarse with 
senseless words which they call great principles and which are noting else, to speak 
honestly, but Utopian .... Our authority will be the crown of order, and in that is 
included the whole happiness of man. The aureole of this authority will inspire a 
mystical bowing of the knee before it and a reverent fear before it of all the peoples. 
True force makes no terms with any right, not even with that of God: none dare come 
near to it so as to take so much as a span from it away.

PROTOCOL No. 23 

1. That the peoples may become accustomed to obedience it is necessary to 
inculcate lessons of humility and therefore to reduce the production of articles of 
luxury. By this we shall improve morals which have been debased by emulation in the 
sphere of luxury. We shall reestablish small master production which will mean laying 
a mine under the private capital of manufactures. This is indispensable also for the 
reason that manufacturers on the grand scale often move, though not always 
consciously, the thoughts of the masses in directions against the government. A 
people of small masters knows nothing of unemployment and this binds him closely 
with existing order, and consequently with the firmness of authority. For us its part 
will have been played out the moment authority is transferred into our hands. 
Drunkenness also will be prohibited by law and punishable as a crime against 
humanness of man who is turned into a brute under the influence of alcohol. 

2. Subjects, I repeat once more, give blind obedience only to the strong hand which 
is absolutely independent of them, for in it they feel the sword of defense and support 
against social scourges .... What do they want with an angelic spirit in a king? What 
they have to see in him is the personification of force and power. 

3. The supreme lord who will replace all now existing ruler, dragging in their 
existence among societies demoralized by us, societies that have denied even the 
authority of God, from whose midst breads out on all sides the fire of anarchy, must 
first of all proceed to quench this all-devouring flame. Therefore he will be obliged to 
kill off those existing societies, though he should drench them with his own blood, that 
he may resurrect them again in the form of regularly organized troops fighting 
consciously with every kind of infection that may cover the body of the State with 
sores. 

4. This Chosen One of God is chosen from above to demolish the senseless forces 
moved by instinct and not reason, by brutishness and humanness. These forces now 
triumph in manifestations of robbery and every kind of violence under the mask of 
principles of freedom and every kind of violence under the mask of principles of 
freedom and rights. They have overthrown all forms of social order to erect on the 
ruins of the throne of the King of the J ews; but their part will be played out the 
moment he enters into his kingdom. Then it will be necessary to sweep them away 
from his path, on which must be left no knot, no splinter. 

5. Then will it be possible for us to say to the peoples of the world: Give thanks to

God and bow the knee before him who bears on his front the seal of the predestination 
of man, to which God himself has led his star that none other but Him might free us 
from all the before-mentioned forces and evils.

PROTOCOL No. 24 

1. I pass now to the method of confirming the dynastic roots of King David to the 
last strata of the earth. 

2. This confirmation will first and foremost be included in that which to this day has 
rested the force of conservatism by our learned elders of the conduct of the affairs of 
the world, in the directing of the education of thought of all humanity. 

3. Certain members of the seed of David will prepare the kings and their heirs, 
selecting not by right of heritage but by eminent capacities, inducting them into the 
most secret mysteries of the political, into schemes of government, but providing 
always that none may come to knowledge of the secrets. The object of this mode of 
action is that all may know that government cannot be entrusted to those who have 
not been inducted into the secret places of its art .... 

4. To these persons only will be taught the practical application of the aforenamed 
plans by comparison of the experiences of many centuries, all the observations on the 
politico-economic moves and social sciences - in a word, all the spirit of laws which 
have been unshakably established by nature herself for the regulation of the relations 
of humanity. 

5. Direct heirs will often be set aside from ascending the throne if in their time of 
training they exhibit frivolity, softness and other qualities that are the ruin of 
authority, which render them incapable of governing and in themselves dangerous for 
kingly office. 

6. Only those who are unconditionally capable for firm, even if it be to cruelty, 
direct rule will receive the reins of rule from our learned elders. 

7. I n case of falling sick with weakness of will or other form of incapacity, kings 
must by law hand over the reins of rule to new and capable hands. 

8. The king's plan of action for the current moment, and all the more so for the 
future, will be unknown, even to those who are called his closest counselors. 

Kl NG OF THE J EWS 

9. Only the king and the three who stood sponsor for him will know what is coming. 

10. In the person of the king who with unbending will is master of himself and of 
humanity all will discern as it were fate with its mysterious ways. None will know what 
the king wishes to attain by his dispositions, and therefore none will dare to stand

across an unknown path. 

11. It is understood that the brain reservoir of the king must correspond in capacity 
to the plan of government it has to contain. It is for this reason that he will ascend the 
throne not otherwise than after examination of his mind by the aforesaid learned 
elders. 

12. That the people may know and love their king, it is indispensable for him to 
converse in the market-places with his people. This ensures the necessary clinching of 
the two forces which are now divided one from another by us by the terror. 

13. This terror was indispensable for us till the time comes for both these forces 
separately to fall under our influence. 

14. The king of the J ews must not be at the mercy of his passions, and especially of 
sensuality: on no side of his character must he give brute instincts power over his 
mind. Sensuality worse than all else disorganizes the capacities of the mind and 
clearness of views, distracting the thoughts to the worst and most brutal side of 
human activity. 

15. The prop of humanity in the person of the supreme lord of all the world of the 
holy seed of David must sacrifice to his people all personal inclinations. 

16. Our supreme lord must be of an exemplary irreproachable.
